Miranda Sawyer is joined for a rare interview by PJ Harvey and Seamus Murphy to talk about their new film A Dog Called Money, a uniquely intimate journey through the inspiration, writing and recording of a PJ Harvey record.

Writer and musician Polly Harvey and award-winning photographer Seamus Murphy, hatched a collaboration. Seeking first-hand experience of the countries she wanted to write about, Harvey accompanied Murphy on some of his worldwide reporting trips, joining him in Afghanistan, Kosovo, and Washington DC. Harvey collected words, Murphy collected images. Back home, the words become poems, songs, then an album, which is recorded in an unprecedented art experiment in Somerset House, London. In a specially constructed room behind one-way glass, the public - all cameras surrendered - are invited to watch the 5 week process as a live sound-sculpture.

Murphy exclusively documents the experiment with the same forensic vision and private access as their travels. By capturing the immediacy of their encounters with the people and places .

PJ Harvey: In Their Own Words20210503 (6M)

Hailed as the world’s best songwriter by Rolling Stone magazine on the release of her first album, Dry, in 1992. PJ Harvey is the only artist to have won the Mercury Music prize twice.

But the Dorset-based musician has long maintained an aura of mystery around her work, preferring to let her music and art do the talking, and comparatively little is known about her personal life.

From her formative years growing up on a farm listening to blues, meeting her lifelong friend and collaborator John Parish, sharing her love of Captain Beefheart with John Peel, to the writing processes and inspirations behind her songs, 6 Music offers a rare glimpse into the PJ Harvey’s world.
