Dolly Parton isn’t the only musician releasing an album inspired by literature (though she does stand apart as the co-author of the book).
The Scottish record label Bibliotapes put out a solicit on Twitter for musicians to compose scores for classic novels, reports the Guardian.
The first to respond was Ioan Morris, with an album for The Magician’s Nephew by C.S. Lewis, and eight more have followed suit, including for 1984 by George Orwell and Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut.
You can read more about Bibliotapes and how it fits into an industry trend in the Guardian, and as a bonus, enjoy Literary Hub’s post on which Taylor Swift album you should listen to based on your favorite author.
