Her current album The Hope Six Demolition Project, reached #1 in the UK Album Charts. PJ Harvey’s first collection of poetry, The Hollow of the Hand, in collaboration with photographer Seamus Murphy, was published by Bloomsbury UK (2015). To celebrate the release Harvey and Murphy presented The Hollow of the Hand show at the Royal Festival Hall as part of London Literature Festival 2015.
