Elizabeth Fraser Scores TV Mini-Series 'The Nightmare Worlds of H.G. Wells'
Published Jan 20, 2016The "Voice of God" comes to TV later this month, with news arriving that former Cocteau Twins singer Elizabeth Fraser has co-composed an operatic score for four-part mini-series The Nightmare Worlds of H.G. Wells.
As Loaded reports [via Fact], Fraser and her husband Damon Reece, a former drummer for Spiritualized, have prepped the score to the forthcoming Sky Arts program, which is based on the stories of author H.G. Wells (The Time Machine, War of the Worlds). The show's cast includes Ray Winstone (Scum, Quadrophenia) and Michael Gambon. It premieres January 28.
While Fraser had previously written music for films like Lord of the Rings and Cruel Intentions, The Nightmare Worlds of H.G. Wells is her and Reece's first full-length score.
The score also marks the over-all first full project from Fraser in 20 years. While solo singles like "Underwater" and "Moses" popped up following the demise of the Cocteau Twins in the late '90s, her last album release was the band's 1996 farewell, Milk & Kisses.
Fraser had hinted at having an album's worth of material back in 2012, but a solo record has yet to materialize.
Below, you'll find a trailer for The Nightmare Worlds of H.G. Wells.
