P.J. Harvey has announced the details of her new album 'The Hope Six Demolition Project', out April 15th.

The follow-up to Harvey's Mercury Prize winning release 'Let England Shake' was teased by an album trailer directed by Seamus Murphy back in December. Today, Steve Lamacq debuted lead single The Wheel on his BBC Radio 6 Music show. According to a press release, Harvey's ninth album documents a "unique artistic journey that took her to Kosovo, Afghanistan, and Washington D.C."

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).
