PJ Harvey has released a new song called “I Inside the Old I Dying,” a track off her upcoming, similarly titled album, I Inside the Old Year Dying.
“In the lyric everyone is waiting for the savior to reappear — everyone and everything anticipates the arrival of this figure of love and transformation,” Harvey shares. “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.”
I Inside the Old Year Dying, the follow-up to 2016’s The Hope Six Demolition Project, drops July 7. It also includes the previously released song “A Child’s Question, August.“
