PJ Harvey says, “After many years of work I am very happy to release this collection of new songs. It was a difficult album to make and took time to find its strongest form, but it has finally become all I hoped for it to be.” The new album is “a resting space, a solace, a comfort, a balm—which feels timely for the times we’re in,” Harvey said in a press release.

‘I Inside the Old Year Dying’ marks PJ Harvey’s first album in seven years, produced and mixed by her long-time creative collaborators John Parish and Flood.

Recorded with producers Flood and John Parish, her longtime collaborators, the album was inspired by Harvey’s epic poem, “Orlam”. Harvey said the album features improvisations with the two producers: “I think the album is about searching, looking—the intensity of first love, and seeking meaning. 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.”
