PJ Harvey announces new album for spring 2016

18.12.15

PJ Harvey has announced that a new album will be released in spring 2016.

The as yet untitled full-length is the follow-up to Harvey's 2011 Mercury Prize-winning 'Let England Shake' and is previewed by a 30-second film clip directed by Seamus Murphy. 

Earlier in 2015, Harvey invited members of the public to attend the recording sessions at a specially constructed studio in Somerset House, London with the opportunity to watch Harvey, engineers, band members, and producers lay down the album's songs in what was called the Recording In Progress (read our report here).

According to a press release, Harvey's ninth album documents a "unique artistic journey that took her to Kosovo, Afghanistan, and Washington D.C."
