POLLY'S HORROR STORIES!
The star says she's "very drawn to dealing with taboo subject matter"...
PJ Harvey has already started writing songs for the follow-up to last year's album, which has received huge critical acclaim and won this year's Mercury Music Prize.
Speaking in the current issue of Q Magazine, she said that she remains fascinated by "taboo subject matter".
She said: "A lot of the songs I've already written delve into dark areas again. 'Stories From The City...' satisfies a piece in me, but it doesn't satisfy me in a whole way.
"I'm still looking for something that kind of covers all areas and I am very, very drawn to music that is unsettling, uncomfortable, dark, dealing with taboo subject matter. That's really where my heart of hearts lies."
A new album is not expected before 2002.
