PJ Harvey announces 'The Hope Six Demolition Project'
PJ Harvey’s ninth studio album will be titled The Hope Six Demolition Project, and is due out April 15, the experimental rocker announced on Thursday.
Harvey revealed in December that she would release a new album in 2016, but even before the official announcement, Harvery spent the first few months of 2015 publicly recording the album as an art installation at London’s Somerset House.
The inspiration for The Hope Six Demolition Project comes from Harvey’s world travels taken between the release of her last album Let England Shake and the beginning of her Somerset House residency. In the four-year period, the singer drew inspiration from her journeys in Afghanistan, Kosovo, and Washington, D.C.
In addition to the announcement, Harvey released a trailer for the album, featuring the opening track “The Community of Hope” and the lead single “The Wheel.” Watch it here:
The track list for The Hope Six Demolition Project is available on Harvey’s website, along with her upcoming festival dates and the option to pre-order the album.
