PJ Harvey has unveiled a driving new song originally recorded during the sessions for her most recent album, The Hope Six Demolition Project. With manic synths and guitars doing a tribal dance around a steady rhythm, “Guilty” fits well within the core concept behind Polly Jean’s last LP. “Gritty little suspects/ Running for the shelter,” she chants on the chorus, calling out the unfairness in what we label justice. “Drones that come/ Come in the thousands/ But nobody asked us/ If we wanted them.” Listen in above.

In addition to the new tune, PJ Harvey has announced a fresh round of European tour dates. The new shows run from October into November, and you can find her complete itinerary below.
