It’s a huge day for people with good taste — PJ Harvey has just announced her first North American tour in seven years in support of last year’s I Inside the Old Year Dying.

Harvey’s last run of North American shows came after the release of 2016’s The Hope Six Demolition Project, and this time she’ll be playing two shows at Toronto’s History on September 25 and 26, plus a stop at Bell Place in Montreal on September 21. Tickets go on sale this Friday, March 1.

I Inside the Old Year Dying is Harvey’s tenth studio album, inspired by her epic poem Orlam and was partially improvised with longtime collaborators Flood and John Parish.

Alongside the tour announcement, Harvey has also shared the video for I Inside the Old Year Dying’s “Seem an I.” Directed by Colm Bairéad, it stars Ruth Wilson and was filmed at Kennel Farm outside Salisbury, England. In a statement about the video, Harvey said:

Ruth and I became friends after working together on Clio Barnard’s film Dark River. I have always greatly admired Ruth’s work as an actor, so had long harboured a dream that we might work together again in some way. When the opportunity to work with Colm Bairéad came up I knew him to be a director Ruth thought highly of, as I did, so it felt right to ask her if she would star in the film. I find the resulting short film beautiful and moving for having Ruth’s magical presence, and Colm’s unique vision.
