PJ Harvey announces new album The Hope Six Demolition Project
PJ Harvey has announced full details of her new album The Hope Six Demolition Project.
The singer-songwriter's follow-up to 2011's Mercury Prize winning Let England Shake will be released on April 15th and can be pre-ordered on the right-hand side of the page.
The album was recorded last year in residency at London’s Somerset House and saw Harvey work with long-time producers John Parish and Flood once again. You can see the album's artwork below:
During the writing of the album, Harvey visited Kosovo, Afghanistan and Washington, D.C., speaking about the writing of the album she said: "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."
She continued: "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."
