PJ Harvey Sets Date For New Album

by Paul Cashmere on January 22, 2016

in New Music,News

The new PJ Harvey album ‘The Hope Six Demolition Project’ draws from several journeys undertaken by Harvey, who spent time in Kosovo, Afghanistan and Washington, D.C. over a four-year period.

“When I’m writing a song I visualise the entire scene. I can see the colours, I can tell the time of day, I can sense the mood, I can see the light changing, the shadows moving, everything in that picture. Gathering information from secondary sources felt too far removed for what I was trying to write about. I wanted to smell the air, feel the soil and meet the people of the countries I was fascinated with”, says Harvey.

The album was recorded last year in residency at London’s Somerset House. The exhibition, entitled ‘Recording in Progress’ saw Harvey, her band, producers Flood and John Parish, and engineers working within a purpose-built recording studio behind one-way glass, observed throughout by public audiences.

Watch this new album trailer by Seamus Murphy featuring tracks The Community of Hope and The Wheel below.

The Hope Six Demolition Project will be available on vinyl, CD and as a digital download. The full track-listing is:

1. The Community of Hope
2. The Ministry of Defence
3. A Line in the Sand
4. Chain of Keys
5. River Anacostia
6. Near the Memorials to Vietnam and Lincoln
7. The Orange Monkey
8. Medicinals
9. The Ministry of Social Affairs
10. The Wheel
11. Dollar, Dollar

This new album follows the 2011 Mercury Prize winning ‘Let England Shake’.
