PJ Harvey to record new album in front of public audience

Singer-songwriter, PJ Harvey plans to record her new album in front of an audience as a part of an art installation in the London Somerset House.

Entitled, “Recording in Progress,” the project was created by Harvey and will be inside an installation constructed of one-way glass that will allow viewers to watch Harvey and her band. The singer’s long-time collaborators, Flood and John Parish will produce the album.

Harvey told The Independent: “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.”

The recording will take place in between January 16 to February 14, and according to the Somerset House’s website, the installation has already sold out.

This will be the singer’s first album since 2011 with Let England Shake. As well as this installation, Harvey is working on her first poetry book, The Hollow Of The Hand, which is due out later this year.
