PJ Harvey Announces Tour, Shares Video for New Song “I Inside the Old I Dying”: Watch

PJ Harvey has shared the new song “I Inside the Old I Dying” from her forthcoming album, I Inside the Old Year Dying. It arrives with a new animated video directed by Cristóbal León and Joaquín Cociña, who describe the visual as “a short story about love, death, and resurrection.” Harvey has also announced a tour of the United Kingdom and Europe. Watch the video and find her tour itinerary below.

“This delicate and beautiful song eluded us until the very last day in the studio,” Harvey said in a statement. “Over the previous five weeks we had tried so many times to capture it and failed, and/but then John [Parish] reinvented the feel of the guitar pattern. As he was demonstrating it in the control room, Flood handed me a microphone and pressed record whilst I sat next to John trying to work out how to sing to it. The result somehow captures the ethereal and melancholic longing I was looking for. In the lyric everyone is waiting for the savior to reappear—everyone and everything anticipates the arrival of this figure of love and transformation. There is a sense of sexual longing and awakening and of moving from one realm into another—from child to adult, from life to death and the eternal.”
