Meanwhile, PJ Harvey’s notebooks were recently adapted for a new BBC radio drama.

The programme, On Kosovo Field, was adapted from the notebooks kept by Harvey when she travelled to the territory while working on her latest album, ‘The Hope Six Demolition Project’, which was released back in April 2016.


Ryan Adams also recently shared the second new single from upcoming album ‘Prisoner’.

“I think the theme of this record is that we’re all prisoners of some desires, in that the very things we love are the things that hold us hostage and keep us trapped,” he told NME. “Either we are the cage or we’re in the cage and it’s trying to figure out in every situation which of those things is real.”
