Listen to PJ Harvey and John Parish’s tribute to Sparklehorse’s Mark Linkous

'Sorry For Your Loss' features on Parish's upcoming album

PJ Harvey and John Parish have shared a new song paying tribute to late Sparklehorse musician Mark Linkous.

Linkous began Sparklehorse in 1995, and would later collaborate with Harvey and Parish on the 2001 album ‘It’s A Wonderful Life‘. He died by suicide in 2010, at the age of 47.

‘Sorry For Your Loss’ will feature on Parish’s new album, ‘Bird Dog Dante’, which will be released on June 15 via Thrill Jockey. On the track, the pair sing: “I’m sorry for your loss/The will to keep the fire burning still/The sun never felt colder.” Listen to it below.


‘Bird Dog Dante’ is Parish’s first solo record since his 2013 release, ‘Screenplay‘. A longtime collaborator of Harvey’s, he first collaborated with her on 1995’s ‘To Bring You My Love‘, and most recently on ‘The Hope Six Demolition Project‘. He also served as music director on her tour for the record, as well as performing in her band.

Earlier this year, Harvey released a new track in ‘An Acre Of Land’, which is taken from the film Dark River. A collaboration with Harry Escott, it is the musician’s take on traditional British folk.

In 2017, she shared a number of new tracks, including ‘A Dog Called Money‘, which were available as a limited run of 7″ singles for sale at her live shows.
