    Polly's new song "An Acre of Land" (a cover of a traditional nursery rhyme, it seems) will be featured in Clio Barnard's film Dark River.

    Paul Muldoon in conversation with PJ Harvey - an hour-long interview, I guess the first and only one from this era.

    She also reads some poetry - Sondheim's "There's Something About a War", Louis MacNeice's "Autobiography", and her own poems "Let England Shake", "The Forest" and "Down by the Water".

    ETA: I can't seem to embed the video, here is the direct link:

    "PJ Harvey has contributed new music to Dark River, the upcoming thriller movie from director Clio Barnard (The Arbor, The Selfish Giant). Watch a trailer featuring a new song below. In the film, set in rural England, a pair of estranged siblings reunited by their father’s death descend into an inheritance dispute. Ruth Wilson, Mark Stanley, and Sean Bean star. "

    Wow, I remember hating her look back then... but now, to think, she indirectly influenced Justin Bieber. She's a genius.

    I was watching Altered Carbon (Netflix series) last night and they were playing This Wicked Tongue on episode 4.

    the full song (An Acre Of Land) is here!

    Late last year, the trailer for the new movie Dark River, a new UK thriller from director Clio Barnard, came out, and it featured an absolutely gorgeous soundtrack: PJ Harvey’s version of the traditional English folk song β€œAn Acre Of Land.” Today, Noisey reports that Harvey is teaming up with composer Harry Escott to soundtrack the entire movie. And Harvey has also shared the full studio version of β€œAn Acre Of Land.” It’s a total stunner, stark and mesmerizing, and you can hear it below, via Noisey.

    I'm late to this but, I fucking love this song and at the time(2016) disliked "The Camp" because it's so transparently bullshit (as if all immigrants are refugees fleeing imminent death LOL) but it's quickly became one of my favorite PJ Harvey songs: the clarity of her voice, the counterpoint of that Egyptian guy...I love this song so much, despite being completely against all the supposed political viewpoints it stood for at the time. And that's okay, because even though I can see PJ as being an ignorant upper-class white cis-woman naive classist SJW, sorry to say, she makes amazing songs that captures...the dire side of life, even though it's not politically correct or even politically real to acknowledge that there exists a "difference":

    New P J Harvey - John Parish song available on Spotify:

    It is called "Sorry for your loss" and it will be included in the new Parish album:

    I honestly hate that politics always come up in PJ Harvey discussions now. I wonder if it's the fact that she's so specific, the bigger message gets lost? All I know is "The Camp" probably shoulda been on the album, and "Dollar Dollar" is absolutely one of the best political songs I've ever heard, like Neil Young or Patti Smith level.

    I'm a few days late on this, but PJ's store put up a bunch of rare shit for sale (at moderately inflated prices). It's been pretty much cleaned out at this point, though.
