PJ Harvey to return with new album

Singer readies 'White Chalk' for September

PJ Harvey is to release a new album later this year.

The singer’s seventh studio album ‘White Chalk’ will come out on September 24.

Harvey began work on the follow-up to 2004’s ‘Uh Huh Her’, last year with producer Flood and John Parish, who also worked on her ‘To Bring You My Love’ and ‘Is This Desire?’ albums in 1995 and 1998 respectively.

The new album also features the singer’s long term collaborators Eric Drew Feldman and Jim White from The Dirty Three.

Harvey is set to showcase new material from ‘White Chalk’ during her sold-out appearance at Bridgewater Hall on July 7 as part of the Manchester International Festival.
