The great PJ Harvey is coming back next month with The Hope Six Demolition Project, her first new album in five years. And after sharing first single “The Wheel,” she’s now letting the world hear “The Community Of Hope,” the song that opens the album. Like “The Wheel,” it’s a driving, ’70s-style rock song that concerns itself with big societal questions. This one seems to address the way corporate interests destroy communities; “they’re gonna build a Wal-Mart here” is the refrain. BBC 6 Music DJ Shaun Keaveny debuted the song on his radio show recently. Hear it below.
The Hope Six Demolition Project is out 4/15 via Vagrant Records.
