The great PJ Harvey was a guest on BBC 1’s The Andrew Marr Show this morning. She discussed her stellar, politically charged album The Hope Six Demolition Project. After a brief interview with the host about how one of the standout and more controversial tracks on the album, “The Community of Hope,” came about, she launched into a stirring performance of the song. After all these years, it’s still incredible the potency the combination of just her voice and guitar has, and the urgency it can evoke and inspire. The interview is first and the performance starts at the 2:02 mark. Watch.
The Hope Six Demolition Project is out now.
