PJ Harvey releases brand new song and video

Singer-songwriter PJ Harvey released the video for her brand new track, 'The Words That Maketh Murder', on January 17.

The song features on her forthcoming eighth studio album, entitled 'Let England Shake', which is due for release on Valentines Day this year (February 14).

Each track on 'Let England Shake' will have an accompanying film and Seamus Murphy directed this particular video, which sees a disjointed visual narrative that's intercepted with scenes of PJ Harvey performing the song acoustically. Murphy said of the video:

"The film for "The Words That Maketh Murder" is one of a series of 12 shorts to accompany the 12 songs that make up PJ Harvey's forthcoming album, Let England Shake. The album is a dense world of Polly's vision, but what interested me most was exploring the eccentricity and enigma of England."
