New PJ HARVEY on the Way

PJ Harvey will release the follow-up to her collaboration with John Parish, 1996's Dance Hall at Louse Point with the new LP A Woman A Man Walked By, due for release on March 30th (UK) via Island. The tracklist is in (see below) and a full European tour is scheduled. I'm really excited about this album, but still I can't help but long for a return to form from Miss Harvey, one of my all-time favorite artists. 2007's piano-laden White Chalk still grabs my attention on lonely nights, but when will she rock our world again?

In related news, I recently saw the new Broadway revival of Hedda Gabler, starring Mary Louise Parker, Michael Cerveris (Hedwig), and Peter Stormare (Fargo/The Big Lebowski). It was a great adaptation (Christopher Shinn) of the classic Ibsen play, but most surprising to me was the fact that Polly Jean provided the original music, largely from reconstructions of White Chalk tracks. Harvey is a true artist and it only made this theatre experience more enriching.

Check out this video for "That Was My Veil", taken from Dance Hall... (1996). And this exceptional live version of "Taut" from her Uh-Huh Her Tour in 2004.
