PJ Harvey Will Record Ninth Studio Album As Part Of a London Art Exhibit
"Recording in Progress" will run from January 16 to February 14
PJ Harvey has announced plans to record her ninth album as part of an art installation called Recording in Progress at Somerset House in London. Running from January 16 to February 14, Recording in Progress will let audiences watch through a one-way glass as Harvey works with producers Flood and John Parish in a custom studio to create the follow-up to 2011’s Let England Shake.
Speaking about the project to the Independent, Harvey, who is also prepping the release of poetry book The Hollow of the Hand, said, “I want ‘Recording in Progress’ to operate as if we’re an exhibition in a gallery. I hope visitors will be able to experience the flow and energy of the recording process.” Tickets are sold out according to Somerset House, but hey, there’s always Craigslist.
