Today sees the download release of The Words That Maketh Murder, the first single from PJ Harvey’s new album, “Let England Shake”. The single sees a physical 7” release on 7th Feb, one week before the album.
The single is accompanied by the release of the second in a series of short films by Seamus Murphy, to compliment each of the 12 album tracks. Each film is a reportage of his travels across the country, filming and photographing the mundane.
The video for The Words that Maketh Murder includes footage of Polly singing with an autoharp, and ballroom dancing in Blackpool.
Harvey continues to prove herself as a classical English songstress on the record which includes monkesque chanting and a piston singalong stomp.
