And there's news of live dates too -around the time of Glastonbury. Hmm...

PJ HARVEY has finished her new album which will be out in the summer.

The singer has been in and out of the studio for much of the year working on the follow-up to 2000’s ’Stories From The City, Stories From The Sea’.

A statement has been issued on her official website, that reads: “The new PJ Harvey album can be expected this summer. The album was written, performed and produced by Polly with Head and Polly recording & mixing it.

Rob Ellis, a long-time collaborator of Polly‘s, played drums & percussion on the record.”

Although no album title has been confirmed, songs on the record include ‘Who The Fuck?’, ‘Shame’, ‘The Life And Death of Mr. Badmouth’, ‘The Letter’ and ‘The Pocket Knife’.

The star is strongly rumoured to be appearing at this year’s Glastonbury Festival, and already dates have been confirmed at the Barcelona Primavera Sound Festival (May 29) and Paris Zenith on June 23.
