LONDON: From within a jungle of musical instruments and audio cables, a voice flows like nectar: British singer PJ Harvey recording her ninth studio album in front of an audience hidden by a one-way mirror. Wearing headphones and a black trouser suit, the slender 45-year-old rocker is surrounded by musicians and her long-standing producer Flood, an industry heavyweight who has worked with Nick Cave, Nine Inch Nails and U2.Harvey explained that her songs often take on the atmosphere of the recording space, and the "resonance" of Somerset House – originally a Tudor palace that later housed the Royal Navy command and tax office – chimes with some of the album's historical themes.During one song, "Ministry of Social Affairs," Harvey stops to ask a musician to change a part played on an electric piano.
