April 24th 2022: New album out in 2023 confirmed in an interview with Kate Kellaway in The Observer.

Spoiler! :
She lets slip that she has a new album coming out next year and, although not supposed to be talking about it, allows herself to say: “I’m really pleased with it – and I’m my own harshest critic.”


June 28th 2022: Summer 2023 confirmed as the release date in an interview with Kory Grow in Rolling Stone. The album was not demoed on a 4-track tape recorder, unlike her previous ones.

Spoiler! :
When she hasn’t been working on poetry, she has been recording a new album, due out next summer. “I’m very pleased with it,” she says of the music. “It took a long time to write to get right, but at last I feel very happy with it.”



“This last album I’ve just done, I literally sang in the phone; I didn’t even demo it, because I didn’t want to get attached to the demo versions.”

She appears to have fully and completely transitioned from musician to poet now; pay no attention to the guitar and effects pedals and cables…

Well, let the speculations begin!

When we first got a few shots of her in the studio over a year ago, I thought they might have been pictures of her recording an audiobook version of her poetry—and now that some of them have been used in the promo for Orlam, it seems it was a right assumption to make.

But these recent ones are different as they clearly feature an array of instruments so some sort of music has been recorded!

Now, will it be a stand-alone full-length album? The long-awaited PJLP10? My first guess—trying not to get my hopes up—was that she might be recording songs featured in Orlam (or maybe even an instrumental soundtrack to accompany readings) but who knows? I feel like she would want Orlam to stand on its own as a book, not overshadowed by a recorded companion piece. So perhaps a totally unrelated musical project has been growing alongside it?

Looking at the guitar pedals she's using, I guess we should brace ourselves for some utterly weird-sounding atmospheric tracks...!

(If you want to get an idea of how they sound like, check them out on Youtube: Arpanoid, Transmisser and -most importantly - the Rainbow Machine, all produced by Earthquaker Devices. I assure you these are some of the craziest guitar pedals on the market!).

She may do an Audio version of the book Orlam, as many do in this days, and maybe she'll recite poems with some strange noise

Now we know for sure a new album is in the making and she is pretty pleased with it, So i would love to speculate a bit about it. Well, one of my, pardon the french, wet dreams is a psychedelic rock ( Doors like) PJ Harvey's album. I mean, We know, thanks to mr Bruise, that the pedals she is using produce weird sounds; and it's a fact she likes The Doors, so my hypothesis/desire may not be that far from the truth. What are your takes on this matter?

Well, we know it won't be accompanied by a demos album. Here's a quote from the new Rolling Stone interview:

If her recent musical interests revealed in interviews and self-curated playlists are a hint, then I suppose we can expect something more atmospheric, soundscape-y and non-linear? I remember her saying that writings scores for theatre opened her up so perhaps we'll get some non-traditional song structures?

Mh, i'm not really sure on what PJ will bring us next year, but there's a thing i know as a fact: it won't be disappointing.

I'm really looking foward to some mini-concerts/radio appearences/whatever( she has done them for the previous albums many times) that will reveal a couple of next album's tracks. I'm confident.
