PJ Harvey 'Let England Shake' Films To Screen At UK Festivals This Summer

A series of short films created by Seamus Murphy to accompany each song on PJ Harvey’s ‘Let England Shake’ album will screen at festivals in the UK this summer.

Award-winning photographer Seamus Murphy travelled 5,000 miles around England to create 12 films inspired by and developed from themes in Harvey’s new album.  Each film is a combination of still and moving imagery, made in the manner of classic photographic reportage recording real & spontaneous situations to document England and the English.

The films will be played as a complete visual accompaniment to the album for the first time in the UK at Latitude in July, followed by screenings at the Big Chill and Reading/Leeds festivals. The individual films will also be played at Glastonbury’s cinema tent.
 
PJ Harvey & Seamus Murphy will also travel to Kosovo at the end of July for a special screening of the films at the prestigious Prizren Dokufest Film Festival where they will participate in an audience Q&A regarding their collaboration.
 
PJ Harvey’s critically acclaimed album, 'Let England Shake', was released in February this year, entering the UK charts in the top 10. PJ Harvey's next single is the album's title track.

This year has seen PJ Harvey receive the NME’s Outstanding Contribution to Music Award, and headline a run of sold out shows in Europe and the US. PJ Harvey has festival shows planned in Europe this summer, ahead of UK dates just announced in Glasgow and Manchester in September.

PJ Harvey is also set to appear at the Portishead ATP event at London’s Alexandra Palace on July 23rd, and the Electric Picnic Festival (Ireland) and Bestival (Isle of Wight) this coming September.

It’s one year since we said we’d see Tom Petty somewhere along the road, and it’s still a bitter one to swallow. We’ve had time to accept that there’s a full stop to his story, and to understand our relationship with his music in a new context, but that doesn’t mean we have to like it.

Mon 22 Oct 2018
Photo: Robin Pope Here’s a thing. Do you remember when Rod Stewart was cool? Probably not. It’s been over 40 years since Faces, the original lad-rockers, split. Perhaps you remember when Sting was cool instead, then? But once the Police went the same way as Stewart’s mob, their frontman launched a similarly disappointing solo career.
Alt-J - Reduxer (Album Review)
Mon 01 Oct 2018
Remix albums don’t always work. The best examples refresh and reveal elements of the original songs, giving them new life and often broadening their appeal. When they fail, it is often because the tracks lack the integrity and consistency of the source material.
