Song of the Day – Tuesday 12/7/2010 PJ Harvey December 7, 2010

PJ Harvey will release her eighth album, Let England Shake which is scheduled for release on 2/14/2011 in the UK and on 2/15/2011 in the US.  She made the following statement to the BBC regarding her new album:

“I think a lot of my work has often been about the interior, the emotional, what happens inside oneself.  This time I’ve just been looking out, so it’s not only to do with taking a look at England, but taking a look at the world and what’s happening in the current day world affairs.  But always trying to come from the human point of view because I don’t feel qualified to sing from a political standpoint.”

Miz Polly Jean will embark on a mini-European Tour (which is already sold out) in February, and will hit the festival circuit this Summer…

Harvey – Written on the Forehead

Josh Grier states, “We weren’t worried about if our label thought the mix was right for radio.  We weren’t making a record that a label was going to own.  We were just making a record for ourselves.  We feel very fortunate that we got to make it the way we wanted with such a great group of people.  We can’t wait for people to hear the record.”
