Published Dec 11, 2008Enigmatic UK songstress PJ Harvey has revealed her new album will drop March 30. Tilted A Woman a Man Walked By, the record will find Harvey once again pairing up with collaborator John Parish and is scheduled to hit via her long-time label home of Island Records.
While Parish co-produced Harvey's To Bring You My Love (1995) and worked with the songwriter on her latest full-length, White Chalk (2007), the new record is being billed as the pair's follow up to their 1996 collaboration, Dance Hall at Louse Point. As far as mixing and the overly technical stuff goes, production vet Flood is taking care of that for the new one.
In other Harvey news, she recently rang in the 15th anniversary of her debut album Dry, which kick-started her road to indie stardom. Here's a bit of what Harvey told Spinner about that period: "It was an extremely exciting time for me. I never even dreamed that I would have the chance to make a record, let alone that it would be so anticipated and received so well. It was just an astonishing time and quite wonderful. I did feel a little like the rabbit in the headlights - I wasn't quite sure what was happening. But I was willing to go along with it."
Sorry, no tracklisting, supporting tour dates or any of that usual stuff has been announced yet for A Woman a Man Walked By.
