PJ Harvey teams up with Ruth Wilson for ‘Seem An I’ video and announces first North American tour in seven years

PJ Harvey has shared the most video for ‘Seem An I’ which features actor Ruth Wilson.

The video for the song, taken from Harvey’s recent album ‘I Inside The Old Year Dying’, was shot at Kennel Farm outside Salisbury and was created by Oscar-nominated screenwriter and director, Colm Bairéad. In recent years, Wilson has appeared in shows including Luther, The Affair and His Dark Materials, while her film credits include Jane Eyre and Saving Mr. Banks.

“Ruth and I became friends after working together on Clio Barnard’s film Dark River,” said Harvey in a press release. “I have always greatly admired Ruth’s work as an actor, so had long harboured a dream that we might work together again in some way.

“When the opportunity to work with Colm Bairéad came up I knew him to be a director Ruth thought highly of, as I did, so it felt right to ask her if she would star in the film. I find the resulting short film beautiful and moving for having Ruth’s magical presence, and Colm’s unique vision.”

Wilson added: “I have always been a huge fan of PJ, so it was a great privilege to work alongside Colm and Polly to bring ‘Seem An I’ to visual life in this mysterious and hypnotic short film. There is no better way to spend a day in the magical world of PJ Harvey.”
