As part of the ongoing PJ Harvey reissue programme Island Records present The Hope Six Demolition Project on 180g Heavyweight Vinyl with an A1 Poster and Download Card.

The Hope Six Demolition Project draws from several journeys undertaken by Harvey, who spent time in Kosovo, Afghanistan and Washington, D.C. over a four-year period. "When I'm writing a song I visualise the entire scene. I can see the colours, I can tell the time of day, I can sense the mood, I can see the light changing, the shadows moving, everything in that picture. Gathering information from secondary sources felt too far removed for what I was trying to write about. I wanted to smell the air, feel the soil and meet the people of the countries I was fascinated with", says Harvey.

The album was recorded in residency at London's Somerset House. The exhibition, entitled 'Recording in Progress' saw Harvey, her band, producers Flood and John Parish, and engineers working within a purpose-built recording studio behind one-way glass, observed throughout by public audiences.
