PJ Harvey
Let England Shake
(Vagrant/Island)
Releasing: 15 February

It’s pretty much a major cultural event every time PJ Harvey releases a new album. One good reason for that is that you never know quite what to expect from her, since the inimitable Harvey seems to reinvent herself with each album even as she stays true to her unshakable and unique musical vision. Two leaked tracks from Polly Jean’s upcoming album Let England Shake—“The Last Living Rose” and “Written on the Forehead”—seem to find her in a more contemplative mood, though the music seems as stirring as ever.
