"PJ Harvey has confirmed that "Guilty" - a track recorded during the "Recording In Progress" Somerset House sessions that spawned new LP "The Hope Six Demolition Project" - will be released on Wednesday 13 July."

Uncut Magazine (March 2016) wrote:
THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY!

When Uncut went to see Recording In
Progress at Somerset House, we watched
Harvey and her band work on a song called
“Guilty”. Sadly, it didn’t make the finished
album. Here, Flood explains why…

"'Guilty' was fascinating. It was one
of the discovery songs for us – for
the way songs could push forward
into a new territory. i’d been experimenting with
contact-micing a tom-tom, and then putting it
through a whammy pedal. I suggested that maybe
we could have a little bit of fun if Kenrick [Rowe]
played the tom-tom and i manipulated the pitch of
it through an amp. We had so much fun doing it.
Then as the session went on, it became quite a
difficult song to get to the place where Polly, John
and I felt it should go. By the end of the process,
even though it was finished, it felt a little bit outside
the rest of the material – as if it had come from a
different place in time. The record felt stronger as
a body of work for not having it on. That’s not to say
that it might not see the light of day. This is part of
witnessing a small part of the process – it can be
completely contradictory to the end result. I think
Polly’s idea of people only getting tiny little
snapshots is so brilliant, because it doesn’t destroy
the mystique. It probably adds to it."


From my archive:

"Guilty" - song recounts a drone attack as witnessed through a grainy surveillance screen: "There's a little figure / on the television / scratching on the ground / waiting for the moment"; "What's he doing with that stick? / Which one is guilty?".

First quote is from one of the many articles about album recording, and the rest of information is from "NME" article which came out in February 2015, and I wanted to hear that song ever since!

P.S.: "Homo Sappy Blues" would be a great B-Side. :shades:

"She will release new song ‘Guilty’ globally on Wednesday (July 13) on all digital platforms."

They usually reveal the cover-art before the release (if there is one).

Here's a picture almost twice as big from official site (it's a plaster model by Michelle Henning):

According to the file info, the picture was made less than a week ago - 07.07.2016 (using Canon EOS 6D).

If that's a question for me: [ :wink: ]

I just used the picture link from official site, - http://pjharvey.net/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/PJH-GuiltyModelBW-300x300.jpg - removed the last part ("300x300" dimensions) and ended up with a source file. As you say, just a stroke of luck (based on "trial and error" from the past). :smile:

I only made out "But nobody asked us if we wanted them" (this line was mentioned in some article), "suspects running for the shelter", and about "soldier eating his lunch" in the "Operations room". Some help from native English speakers?

This sample is very catchy, and it indeed sounds very different from the album.
___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

"What's he doing with that stick? What's he doing with that stick?
Which one is guilty? Which one is guilty?"

"... come in a thousands,
but nobody asked us if we wanted them"

"Back in the bunker, in the Operations room
baby-boy (?) soldier is eating his lunch"

"Terror in boys' eyes (???)"
