PJ Harvey “The Last Living Rose” Video

Published in Blog Archive, Culture Bully. Tags: .

Recently speaking to director Seamus Murphy via email about the visuals used to accompany PJ Harvey‘s song “The Last Living Rose,” he explained, “I tried to present images that worked with the feelings, sensibility and rhythm of Polly’s beautiful song. So although they are not obvious or literal, they are not exactly random either.” This video serves as the first of 12 which the award-winning photographer will release in support of Harvey’s new album, Let England Shake. Appropriately, the visuals to each of the videos will feature both still and video footage which was captured during a 5000 mile road trip Murphy made throughout England.

Supporting Harvey on the track is long-time collaborator John Parish and Mick Harvey, formerly of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. Let England Shake will be released February 15 via Vagrant Records.
