The return of PJ Harvey


2010 isn’t even over, I haven’t really got to grips with my end of year lists, but I’m already looking forward to what 2011 will bring musically.

And one of those things is the eighth studio album from PJ Harvey.*

It’s entitled Let England Shake and will be released on February 14 on Island. It’s been produced by PJ with Mick Harvey, Flood and John Parish. There’s been a handful of dates been released -and a return to the festival stage is also mooted.

If you haven’t seen her live before – i know I posted this clip last year, but it was a fantastic performance to witness (I was there! Still so proud…):

More details as and when I have it but here’s something from the 1993 session she did for John Peel:

PJ Harvey -‘Naked Cousin (Peel session).’ mp3

*the PR folk are obviously not including the two collaborations with John Parrish, 4 track demos or the Peel Sessions LP. That’s fair enough, I guess.
