P.J. Harvey has shared a video for The Wheel, the lead single from her upcoming album 'The Hope Six Demolition Project'.
Directed by frequent collaborator Seamus Murphy, the clips is a collation of footage the two took during trips to Kosovo between 2011-2015. Speaking to Noisey, Murphy had this to say about the film:
"Making the film for The Wheel involved a mix of footage from the first trip in 2011, rehearsals I shot of Polly in London and the most recent trip to Kosovo. The enormous refugee crisis in Europe had been news for months. I spent some time on the Greek and Macedonian borders, and in Serbia, before traveling into Kosovo. It was happening in and through territories associated with recent conflicts in Kosovo and the wider Balkans. The idea of cycles, wheels and repetition once again being all too apparent and necessary to make."

P.J. Harvey will release 'The Hope Six Demolition Project' on April 15th via Island Records (pre-order).
