PJ Harvey hasn’t released an album in over six years, marking the longest gap between records in her career. However, that wait will soon be coming to an end.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, the “Down By the Water” rocker reveals that she’s been working on a new album to follow 2016’s The Hope Six Demolition Project.

“I’m very pleased with it,” Harvey says of the upcoming record, which is currently set to be released next summer. “It took a long time to write to get right, but at last I feel very happy with it.”

When it does arrive, the album will be Harvey’s milestone 10th studio effort. 

More recently, Harvey has been reissuing her back catalog on vinyl. Earlier this year, she released a book of poetry titled Orlam.
