PJ Harvey’s Long-Awaited Next Album Will Arrive This Spring
PJ Harvey has shared an album trailer for her next full-length, which is due out spring 2016.
In the new teaser trailer, Harvey can be seen playing an excerpt of a guitar-heavy song and singing, “This is the Ministry of Defense / Stairs and walls are all that’s left.” Harvey's collaborator Seamus Murphy directed the clip; watch it above.
Harvey’s latest album was inspired by the singer’s trips to Kosovo, Afghanistan and Washington, D.C. She then recorded the LP during a month-long public art exhibition in London dubbed "Recording in Progress," where fans could watch the English singer-songwriter at work. Harvey debuted some of those songs at a multimedia performance this past fall. The singer’s trips abroad also inspired the collection of poetry The Hollow of the Hand, which arrived in October.
The upcoming record will be Harvey’s ninth; it serves as a follow-up to 2011’s Let England Shake.
