Patti Smith has hailed the new single by PJ Harvey.

Harvey last week released 'The Words That Maketh Murder', the lead track from her upcoming album Let England Shake.

Smith told The Guardian: "[I've been] listening to Polly Harvey's new song - she has this new song, 'The Words That Maketh Murder' - what a great song.

"It just makes me happy to exist. Whenever anyone does something of worth, including myself, it just makes me happy to be alive. So I listened to that song all morning, totally happy."

Smith confirmed plans to finish her own next album next month. It has reportedly been inspired by a visit to Dylan Thomas's home in Laugharne, St Francis of Assisi and Mikhail Bulgakov's The Master and Margarita.
