PJ Harvey Close To Completing 'Ugly' New Album PJ Harvey says she is close to completing her new studio album and intends to showcase it at Glastonbury this year.
The singer says the new LP is "ugly and disturbing" compared to her last two. She is planning to release the album later this year, ahead of a UK tour. Harvey is also collaborating with Queens of the Stone Age for the 9th Desert Sessions album along with former Marilyn Manson bass player Twiggy.
"With every album I tend to react against the previous one in an effort to find new ground," she told Radio 1
"With this record, it's pretty ugly really. Quite an ugly sounding batch of songs. Quite disturbing, quite dark, quite bluesy. "At the moment it's feeling good. I just go by how my guts feel."
