Let England Shake is the eighth studio album by English singer-songwriter and musician PJ Harvey, released on 14 February 2011 by Island Records. Production began around the time of White Chalk's release in 2007, though it is a departure from the piano-driven introspection of that album. Let England Shake was written over a two-and-a-half year period, and recorded in five weeks at a church in Dorset during April and May 2010.

PJ Harvey regales her listeners with yet another collection of haunting anthems on this dual-themed mini-masterwork. The album relates the horrors of war and the inevitable scars the fighting leaves on a country’s psyche, while simultaneously detailing the songstress' love/hate relationship with her UK motherland. The title track kicks off the album with Harvey declaring Let England shak. fear our blood won’t rise again, yet she quickly reverses course on songs The Last Living Rose and England, where her songwriting recalls The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society-era.

PJ Harvey followed her ghostly collection of ballads, White Chalk, with Let England Shake, a set of songs strikingly different from what came before it except in its Englishness. White Chalk's haunted piano ballads seemed to emanate from an isolated manse on a moor, but here Harvey chronicles her relationship with her homeland through songs revolving around war. Throughout the album, she subverts the concept of the anthem - a love song to one’s country - exploring the forces that shape nations and people.

Let England Shake is the eighth studio album by PJ Harvey. It was released on 14 February 2011 in the UK, and on 15 February 2011 in the US. Work on it began around the time of White Chalk's release in 2007, though it is a departure from the piano-driven introspective collection of that album. It was written between late 2007 and 2008, and recorded over a five-week period.

The Let England Shake album came top of several media round ups in 2011. When the HMV music chain released its annual poll of polls, working out which records have come up most frequently in the various end of year surveys, Harvey's long player was on the list. Said HMV Music Manager John Hirst: "Musically it's untouchable, combining deceptively simple songwriting with sublime musicianship and sparse production to great effect

Lyrics to "Let England Shake" song by PJ Harvey: The West's asleep. Let England shake, weighted down with silent dead  . I fear our blood won't rise again. England's dancing days are done. Another day, Bobby, for you to come home & tell me indifference won. Smile, smile Bobby, with your lovely mouth. Pack up your troubles, let's head out to the fountain of death & splash about, swim back and forth & laugh out loud, until the day is ending, & the birds are silent in the branches, & the insects are courting in the bushes, & by the shores of lovely lakes heavy stones are falling.
