PJ Harvey has unveiled a brand new song titled ‘The Orange Monkey’.

The song is lifted from Harvey’s upcoming new album, ‘The Hope Six Demolition Project’. That album is the follow up to 2011’s ‘Let England Shake’ and will be released next week (April 15).

‘The Orange Monkey’ follows on from lead singles ‘The Wheel’ and ‘The Community Of Hope’. The latter song was recently criticised by Washington, DC politicians.
