Listen: PJ Harvey – The Community of Hope

11.03.16,

After premiering on BBC Radio 6 Music yesterday, P.J. Harvey's new single The Community of Hope is now streaming in full.

The opening song from her upcoming album 'The Hope Six Demolition Project', Harvey's new single addresses capitalist expansion in American communities ("They're gonna put a Walmart here"), inspired by her trip and "artistic journey" to Washington D.C. with filmmaker Seamus Murphy since the release of her Mercury Prize-winning album 'Let England Shake'.

In early 2015, Harvey invited members of the public to attend the recording sessions at a specially constructed studio at Somerset House, London with the opportunity to watch Harvey, engineers, band members, and producers lay down the album's songs in what was called the Recording In Progress (read our report here).

Listen to The Community of Hope below.

P.J. Harvey's 'The Hope Six Demolition Project' is out April 15th through Island Records (pre-order).
