Song of the Day: Pj Harvey – A Child’s Question, August

PJ Harvey’s tenth studio album, I Inside the Old Year Dying, is set for release July 7th.

On this album, which was recorded with long-time creative collaborators John Parish and Flood, PJ Harvey builds a sonic universe somehow located in a space between life’s opposites, and between recent history and the ancient past. Scattered with biblical imagery and references to Shakespeare, all of these distinctions ultimately dissolve into something profoundly uplifting and redemptive.

The lead single, “A Child’s Question, August,” is out today alongside a music video directed by Steve Gullick.
