Excitement is high for The Hope Six Demolition Project, the forthcoming ninth LP from British artist PJ Harvey. The record, which began as a series of performances in London’s Somerset House last year, is out April 15th via Vagrant.

The album is reportedly a collection of meditations composed during four years of travel, as Harvey said  in The Quietus:

When I’m writing a song I visualise the entire scene. I can see the colours, I can tell the time of day, I can sense the mood, I can see the light changing, the shadows moving, everything in that picture. Gathering information from secondary sources felt too far removed for what I was trying to write about. I wanted to smell the air, feel the soil and meet the people of the countries I was fascinated with.

The lead single is a gravelly rocker called “The Wheel,” and you can hear it below via Spotify.
