PJ Harvey and British composer Harry Escott have collaborated on the theme for the upcoming Dark River film.

The song is called An Acre of Land, while Escott, who scored the entire film, said:

"Recording PJ Harvey’s vocal on “An Acre of Land”, a song we arranged together for Dark River, was a spine-tingling experience."

An Acre of Land will be released on February 9 via independent label Cognitive Shift Recordings - a collaborative label between One Little Indian Records and Manners McDade Publishing. Dark River, meanwhile, will arrive on February 23.

Last summer PJ Harvey shared another collaboration. She teamed up with Egyptian recording artist Ramy Essam for The Camp, which was released to "raise much-needed awareness and funding to aid displaced children in the Lebanese Bekaa Valley."

Imagination Is Key: How The Sheepdogs Are Keeping Rock 'N' Roll Colourful
Wed 31 Oct 2018
It’s virtually impossible to do anything completely new in the realm of rock'n'roll, especially when some of the greatest acts of all time have already pioneered, innovated and explored the genre to its very limits and beyond. Does that mean like-minded young bands should just lazily imitate their predecessors or even give up? Hell, no. They need to follow the example set by the Sheepdogs, write the best songs possible and spice them up with as many stylistic and instrumental flavours as their talents will allow.

Baxter Dury, Étienne De Crécy, Delilah Holiday - B.E.D (Album Review)
Thu 08 Nov 2018
When Baxter Dury picks apart the ironies of the modern day on Only My Honesty Matters, in that deep, cigarette-gravelled voice, the minimalism of the instrumental beneath his rhythmic, spoken word monologue about “having a roll up” and “impotent white obvious people” listening to Florence and the Machine is almost forgivable. Almost.
Swearin' - Fall Into The Sun (Album Review)
Thu 01 Nov 2018
Space can be good, whether it’s allowing us to take a break from people or helping intrigue to blossom in the moments left unfilled in a piece of music. Left to our own devices, we are able to take stock, gain perspective and ultimately grow. It feels like Swearin’, who split in 2015 when guitarists and vocalists Allison Crutchfield and Kyle Gilbride ended their romantic and musical relationship, would back that sentiment.
