It’s leering, brash, and dissonant, but also not without its warmth: Despite the bleakness of the guided car tour in "The Community of Hope," there’s a driving optimism to its droning guitar and steady drums. Questions of perspective, and how we bear witness, feel central to The Hope Six Demolition Project. We were voyeurs, watching her make a record about being a voyeur. Is it a deconstruction of the protest record?

PJ Harvey has announced her new album, The Hope Six Demolition Project. The follow-up to 2011's Let England Shake will be released on April 15 on Island Records. Watch a new trailer for the album below. Directed by Seamus Murphy, it features the songs "The Community of Hope" and "The Wheel. Also find the tracklist and album cover below. The first single, "The Wheel", premiered today on Steve Lamacq's show on BBC Radio 6 Music. The Hope Six Demolition Project was created in sessions open to the public as part of a London museum exhibition last year. While writing the songs (as well as her poetry book The Hollow of the Hand), Harvey traveled to Kosovo, Afghanistan, and Washington . with er Seamus Murphy. Last fall, she debuted 10 new songs as part of a multimedia show in London with Murphy. The Hope Six Demolition Project

Chugging guitar underlines the ever-present sense of disenchantment in ironically bleak opener The Community of Hope, named after a local charity and already controversial with Washington DC citizens angry at being branded zombies living in a drug town shit-hole. By closing refrain They’re gonna put a Walmart here you’re already drowned in life’s pointlessness, and there’s still ten more songs to go.

The Hope Six Demolition Project. The Hope Six Demolition Project is the ninth studio album by English singer-songwriter and musician PJ Harvey, released on 15 April 2016 on Island Records. The album is Harvey's first since her acclaimed Mercury Prize-winning album Let England Shake, released in 2011.

Photograph: Maria Mochnacz. The Hope Six Demolition Project is an album with quite a story attached. Preparations for the follow-up to 2011’s Mercury prize-winning Let England Shake involved Polly Harvey travelling to Afghanistan, Kosovo and the grimmer parts of Washington DC in the company of film-maker and photographer Seamus Murphy, the better to record the effects of war and poverty. In contrast to Let England Shake’s gauzy layers of echoing guitars and abstruse samples, The Hope Six Demolition Project deals in a kind of raucous simplicity. It involves thumping drums (heavy on the tom-toms), distorted guitars, massed Bad Seeds-like backing vocals, big, hook-laden choruses and really sharp, punchily effective tunes; it’s a long time since a PJ Harvey album felt as abundant in earworm melodies as this.

PJ Harvey – The Lonely Wolf 12. Gazelle Twin – Cutting Into Flesh 13. PJ Harvey – Subterranean 14. PJ Harvey – The Crowded Cell. The Virtues’, featuring original music by PJ Harvey, begins on Wednesday 15th May at 9pm GMT on Channel 4. The 4-part drama tackles themes of repressed memory, apocalyptic revenge and the hope of redemption. I am so happy to have provided the original music for this extraordinary and powerful new drama by a director I have admired and followed all my life, says Harvey.

Harvey delivers more feeling than reporting when she juxtaposes fading photographs of missing children with relentless brass and beats on "The Wheel" or lets her lyrics pile on top of each other with funereal inevitability on the weary "Chain of Keys. However, the album's weak moments are almost as striking as its strengths.

Excellent album. No problems at all with the quality of the vinyl or packaging. Came complete with poster and download.
Excellent album, but crappy pressing... As my copy of Let England Shake (https://www.discogs.com/PJ-Harvey-Let-England-Shake/release/2709851) is of great quality (very clear and precise), I was expecting quite the same for this album. Unfortunately, with this one the difference between the vinyl pressing and the digital version (spotify HQ) is overwhelming...
UK Vinyl 4774545. Came with poster and download card. While I love this album I wasn't expecting the vinyl version to be great after my copy of Let England Shake needed cleaning 4 times to get rid of the dust, paper and wood glue. Also some of the reviews had put me off and as i already have a digital version so was debating about wether it was worth getting on vinyl... then I saw it was £10.99 on black Friday from amazon and decided it was worth the risk! Sound quality: (cleaned before playing) Very pleasantly surprised this pressing is very good, big soundscape and dynamic. No visible dust or scratches and played with very minimal surface noise. The album was recorded in a church hall community centre so it does have a certain direct low-fi aesthetic, I think some of the negative comments can be attributed more to this than any issues with the vinyl pressing.Packaging: Matt card gatefold, OK... not to keen on the cover image, although works better at the bigger size. photo in the gatefold is good though.Music: Excellent, its amazing that someone who has been making music for +25 years has managed to maintain such a high standard of work. A true artist.
I just like this album a lot.Yeah it's in a flimsy cover and people are critical of the quality of the pressing but to me, this is simply inherently 'lo-fi' (think a less extreme Sparklehorse) which gives it a dynamic for listening to that it would just leave you thinking 'what's missing here?'Sibilance..? Maybe but it doesn't kill it for me either... sometimes, over-cleaning and filtering kill everything..!Overall, this is a great album, has great production to my own mind and it's a keeper.Oh and yeah... I have the poster and the (mp3) download.:)
I cannot imagine how anyone can be really satisfied with the pressing qualityof this record . If you intend to rip this album at 24/96 on good equipment make sure you have plenty of time for post processing because you need it ....it's a mess.Pretty sad since it is a good album ....One think you can be 100% sure when purchasing PJ Albums ...she does always good stuff
My copy (purchased from HMV yesterday) came with a download card. Upon redemption was presented with the choice of 320kbps MP3 or 16/44.1k WAV files.
Hi, anyone notice vocal sibilance on the record, especially at the last song "Dollar, Dollar"?
Got it trough a german mailorder the day of its release - no sticker, no downloadcard, extreme thin gatefold cover but with poster. Still basically the cheapest deal GZ-Media produces, so I guess someone at Island Records fu**ed up. Very sad, the album is great!
Great album, bought in France. The poster was included but no download code.
I bought the Lp in Dublin last Saturday and I got the full package, poster and download. Strong, powerful and interesting album.
In Australia, notified of a delay in release date by distributor, received yesterday (two days to my joint by courier)No download code, but I did get receive a tote bag with the cover artwork on the side.
No download code in mine and I'm from the UK
Really thin paper gatefold and inner sleeve - advertised as 'heavyweight gatefold' by Resident in Brighton - think that's what they were told they were getting...mmm not cheap either - great music however. GZ pressing : ( - plays ok despite looking like it's coated in flour - lot's ofhairline scratches - download card and poster included in mine.
Poster, but no download code in Poland. Gatefold paper is way to thin. Bit disappointing release.
Has anyone outside UK got the download code? If so where did you buy the LP?
The U.S. pressing came with the poster and download code. Thick, soft card stock for the jacket, too. Very pleased with the quality.
No download code included, no sticker but the poster. Bought in Austria on day of worldwide release 13.04.2016
No download code included, no sticker but the poster. I'm in Germany.
Sadly no download code either (same pressing, bought in France)... Need to rip or p2p to take it in the car.
No Download code, no sticker and no poster in mine too. I'm in France.
No download code with my copy either :-( Did anybody try to contact Island to get a code? Bought my copy in Germany.
Fast Lovebird
I contacted Island Records via their website. They emailed me a code and a link to follow.
No download code with my copy, too ! What a pity.
Murky looking GZ pressing, with low level surface noise quite often. The label have a nerve considering the price. I do have a download code in with the poster though.
My sentiments exactly. I got this reduced but it was £24 in the UK when it came out and has been done about as cheap as possible. Some if these record companies are taking advantage right now of the vinyl resurgence and doing it on the cheap :(
Tried a second copy. Cleaner looking vinyl, much less dirt on it and better sound. Worth trying again if you get a duff.
No download code with my copy! arrrrgh!!! would like to know if others got it?
Yellow Judge
Bought in Denmark. Poster but No code. Pisses med off!Nice music though. And I probably wont get tired of it, cause I will only be able listen to it the aprox 2% of my time where I am in the same room as my record player. Grrrr
No download code for me also, no sticker, no card
hi all, no sticker and download card on mine too.
I too got no download card. Arrrgh... It does feel like absolutely no effort went into the packaging.
Mine also didn't have a download card. (It did not have the sticker promising one either.)
