The one and only PJ HARVEY returns with a brand new song about an important message. The Camp was recorded together with Egyptian artist RAMY ESSAM to raise awareness and much needed support towards the health and educational well-being of displaced children in the Bekaa Valley of Lebanon.
Both artists will donate all net profits from the track to Beyond Association in the Bekaa Valley, a national Lebanese non-Governmental Organisation. The Rick Holbrook-editied video for The Camp features the work of photo-journalist Giles Duley who describes the issue in the following statement:
‘It is hard to comprehend the scale of the crisis in Lebanon, a country of 4 million now hosting over 1 million Syrian refugees. The infrastructure of the country is pushed to its limit, and nowhere is that situation more desperate than in the Bekaa Valley. However, there are some amazing organisations doing incredible, effective, and selfless work on the ground there, and of all the NGOs I have documented, none have impressed me more than Beyond. To visit their schools and witness their programs is to see hope – and that is something we have to support.’
Aside from helping those in need the new PJ HARVEY tune is yet another testament of musical strength by the unique artist.
