Tuesday Tunes – “The Wheel” by PJ Harvey

(Or listen here if you don’t have Spotify)

PJ Harvey returns with her follow-up to 2011’s Let England Shake with a new track that could fit nicely on that album. But knowing this English songstress, we can expect few similarities between Let England Shake and her forthcoming ninth album, The Hope Six Demolition Project.

Harvey took a unique and very public approach to record her latest effort. The album was recorded live at London’s Somerset House as part of an art installation. Through one-way glass, spectators could watch the recording process, but Harvey and her team could not see the spectators. This type of observation feels similar to what Harvey discusses in “The Wheel,” in which 28,000 children disappear as the world observes instead of taking action.
