5 May 2020, 15:23
Sally Rooney's novel Normal People has been turned into a hugely popular TV series - and there's a fantastic soundtrack to match.
Set in the Irish countryside and the streets of Dublin, the story follows Connell and Marianne from school to university as they fall in and out of love and come of age in the process.
Turning such a popular book into a TV series can always be problematic, especially if fans don't feel the on screen story does the novel justice, but the twelve part BBC series has been a huge success and it's wonderfully produced soundtrack is a moving collection of instrumental and atmospheric tracks.
Spread over twelve episodes, the soundtrack is an eclectic mix of sounds from a variety of artists including Selena Gomez, Imogen Heap, Elliott Smith, Nick Drake, London Grammar and Billy Ocean.
