PJ Harvey is set to perform in front of the UK’s Prime Minister David Cameron this weekend on the BBC’s [i]Andrew Marr Show[/i].

The singer will play material from her Mercury Prize-winning album ‘Let England Shake’ on Sunday (October 2).

This is the second time the singer has performed on the show in front of a UK Prime Minister. Harvey played the title track of her album in front of ex-PM Gordon Brown last year, one week ahead of the General Election.

The star, whose album deals primarily with war, also recently spoke out over the London riots.

“I can’t say I was surprised. It was just a matter of time,” she told [i]NME[/i]. “[We will] just wait and see what the government chooses or what it puts in place to start addressing some of the issues that brought it about in the first place. We’ll have to wait and see.”

She added: “People are finding their voices. There’s been an awful amount of suppression and censorship. The world is becoming more and more based on moneymaking and less and less on supporting a good quality of life for everybody, and everything we’re seeing, people getting so frustrated that they feel like they have to rise up, is partly because of this.”
