PJ Harvey Shares New Song The Crowded Cell From UK Series The Virtues

Thursday, 16 May 2019 Written by Jon Stickler

PJ Harvey has released a harrowing new song.

The Crowded Cell, which envisions themes of imprisonment, is lifted from the score of filmmaker Shane Meadows' latest offering, four-part drama series The Virtues. The first instalment recently aired on Channel 4, with Harvey penning the score for that and the remaining three episodes. She said:

"I am so happy to have provided the original music for this extraordinary and powerful new drama by a director I have admired and followed all my life. Shane has a unique directness and sensitivity to his work which I am drawn to and aspire to in my own work, so our collaboration was open and trusting.

"I sent Shane ideas as demos for him to try out as he edited and let him choose what he used and where to the greatest effect. In the end we both loved how the demos worked so left them as they were, adding to the raw beauty of the piece."

Harvey also recently wrote the score to the stage production of All About Eve, which was released last month.
