The mystery is solved. Last Friday, PJ Harvey’s Facebook profile showed a link— letenglandshake.com, a site still under construction—that in fact was a first hint aimed at drawing our attention towards a message in a hidden corner of Harvey’s website. The message said that today, 23rd November, there’d be an announcement. And here it is.
The Polly Jean Harvey’s team has officially confirmed what Mick Harvey already mentioned in September: the new long player by Polly will be released in February, on the 14th to be precise. The album, the eighth in her discography, is entitled “Let England Shake”. If you want to learn more about Polly’s comeback, look for the interview the NME published in this week. More details soon.
