Earlier this year, British singer-songwriter PJ Harvey invited fans to observe the recording of her ninth album at London’s Somerset House. There's no official update on when the record is coming, but today's announcement indicates that it may be pretty soon: she'll be playing her first full-band show in five years at London’s Field Day festival next summer.
