The latest single, “The Camp,” is a spacial and powerful song. It is a beautiful collaboration with Egyptian musician Ramy Essam and also meant to raise awareness for the Syrian Refugee Crisis in Lebanon.
‘The Camp’ – released digitally on Friday 9 June 2017 – was recorded in Bristol with Harvey’s longtime collaborator John Parish, who produced and mixed the track.
The following is an excerpt from Ramy Essam’s verse of The Camp, translated from Egyptian to English: “I wish I had wings to fly away, far away. Meet smiley faces who never ask where I came from; not to ask about colour, race, or religion. What difference does it make if we’re all humans? No wars, no limits, no borders. Earth is everyone’s right.”
