PJ Harvey The Last Living Rose
(Vagrant) PJ Harvey has released a new video for the track "The Last Living Rose" off of her upcoming album 'Let England Shake' (available Feb 15).
The video was directed by the award-winning photographer Seamus Murphy who has directed series of videos to accompany all 12 songs on 'Let England Shake'.
The 12 videos will feature still and moving images from a 5,000 mile road-trip Murphy undertook around England. He has worked similarly with still photography on journeys through America and Russia.
Inspired and developed from themes in Harvey's new album, the films were made in the manner of classic photographic reportage - recording real & spontaneous situations. They make up a visual diary of Murphy's journey, travelling light and alone, and his attempt to document England and the English.
Murphy has mixed his observations on England with images from his work in Afghanistan, Iraq and the Middle East - places Polly refers to in her depiction of England. The film soundtrack, the studio recording of the album 'Let England Shake', is mixed at times with footage and audio Murphy captured of Harvey in rehearsal and in performance. In addition some of the album lyrics were given a voice by people he encountered on his journey.
