Video: PJ Harvey Releases Stunning Clip for 'The Last Living Rose'

Clip is one of 12 that will accompany tracks from her new album 'Let England Shake'

December 20, 2010 5:30 PM ET

PJ Harvey, whose eight studio album Let England Shake comes out next year, has released another song from the record. "The Last Living Rose" is a spare track that recalls Harvey's most personal, stripped-down work.

The song's video, which was also released today, is one of 12 films photojournalist Seamus Murphy shot to accompany each track on Let England Shake. Murphy used photos and video from a 5,000-mile road trip that he made around England, and also shot Harvey in rehearsal.

A few weeks ago, Harvey released "Written On The Forehead," a haunting track in which she sings in her upper register; it samples Niney the Observer's "Blood and Fire" riddim.

Let England Shake will be released in the United States by Vagrant Reords. The album, which Harvey recorded with Flood, John Parish and Mick Harvey at a 19th-century church in Dorset, England, will come out on February 15, 2011.

Song Stories

“Hungry Like the Wolf”

Duran Duran | 1982

This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
