The cast recording of the West End revival of Evita — starring Argentine actress Elena Roger in the title role — has been delayed.

Originally scheduled for release on the Polydor label June 19, the single CD will now arrive in U.K. stores Aug. 14, according to a spokesperson for the musical. The recording of the Andrew Lloyd Webber-Tim Rice musical will feature 19 tracks, including "You Must Love Me," which was penned for the motion picture of Evita, which starred Madonna as the famed wife of the Argentine dictator. The complete track listing follows.

Evita officially opened at London's Adelphi Theatre June 21. Directed by Grandage with choreography by Rob Ashford, the brand-new staging of the award-winning musical marks the first major West End revival since the show debuted at the Prince Edward Theatre in 1978. That production, which was directed by Hal Prince, made a star out of its leading lady, Elaine Paige. Similarly, the eventual Broadway debut — in 1979 at the Broadway Theatre — brought fame and a Tony Award to its Evita, Patti LuPone, now back on Broadway in the acclaimed revival of Sweeney Todd.

In addition to Roger, the current Evita company includes Philip Quast as Peron, Matt Rawle as Che, Lorna Want as the Mistress and Gary Milner as Magaldi. Abbie Osman is the alternate Eva.
