March 11 sees the reissue of the vinyl of THE HOPE SIX DEMOLITION PROJECT, the ninth studio album by PJ Harvey, alongside a collection of unreleased demos, which will be available on CD, vinyl, and digital through UMe/ Island.

Written during Harvey's travels to Kosovo, Afghanistan, and Washington DC with her frequent collaborator, photographer/ filmmaker Seamus Murphy, "The Hope Six Demolition Project" was then created in sessions open to the public as part of an art installation at Somerset House in London called Recording in Progress. The sessions were forty-five minutes each in length and lasted for a month, during which viewers could see Harvey making the album through one-way glass with Flood and John Parish.

THE HOPE SIX DEMOLITION PROJECT topped the UK charts upon release, her first album to do so. It also charted highly in end-of-year roundups in the likes of Mojo, Q, Uncut, Chicago Tribune, Under the Radar, and many more.
