PJ Harvey has announced that she will release her tenth album ‘I Inside The Old Year Dying’ in July – her first record to be released under a new deal with Partisan Records. Out now is the LP’s first single ‘A Child’s Question, August’.

The new songs, she says, offer “a resting space, a solace, a comfort, a balm – which feels timely for the times we’re in”.

“I think the album is about searching, looking – the intensity of first love and seeking meaning”, she goes on. “Not that there has to be a message, but the feeling I get from the record is one of love – it’s tinged with sadness and loss, but it’s loving. I think that’s what makes it feel so welcoming: so open”.

The album was recorded with longtime collaborator John Parrish at Battery Studios in London. “The studio was set up for live play and that’s all we did”, says Harvey, adding that – as a result – the whole thing “came out of me in about three weeks”.

‘I Inside The Old Year Dying’ is out on 7 Jul. Watch the video for ‘A Child’s Question, August’ here:
