JARV IS… share full soundtrack to ‘This Is Going To Hurt’ TV series
Jarvis Cocker’s JARV IS… recently composed the original soundtrack for the critically acclaimed BBC TV series “This is Going to Hurt” and you can now listen to it in full below.
The soundtrack for the show based on Adam Kay’s award-winning international, multi-million selling memoir, which premiered on BBC1 earlier this month, was recorded at Narcissus Studios, London by Drew Dungate-Smith during various sessions throughout 2021. Most of the performances are live takes featuring the entire band – often recorded whilst they watched the playback of key sequences from the series.
Jarvis is quoted as saying “It’s our love song to the NHS”, and each episode features at least one song with lyrics by Cocker, who had access to the scripts (adapted by Adam Kay from his own book) from an early stage in the production process.
Lead Director Lucy Forbes says “As one of England’s finest lyricists and songwriters we could not have been more thrilled to have Jarvis Cocker and his band write original songs and score for This Is Going To Hurt.
“His incisive wit, keen sense of observation and ability to write beautiful heartfelt melodies was the perfect fit. His music immediately intertwined with the fabric and tone of the show and took it to a whole new level, getting right to the heart of the pathos, pain and joy of working at the NHS. It was a huge privilege to work with him on this project, and I can’t imagine TIGTH without him.”
