UMC/Island and Beggars have announced a comprehensive reissue campaign which will see PJ Harvey’s entire back catalogue – plus her two albums in collaboration with John Parish – released on vinyl over the next 12 months. For the first time, each of PJ Harvey’s album demos will be available as a stand-alone album on digital and vinyl.
The first release is Dry, Harvey’s debut album back in print on vinyl for the first time in 20 years with the Beggars Archive/Too Pure Records reissue on 24 July. Released to worldwide acclaim on 30 March 1992 it was recorded at The Ice House in Yeovil and features the singles ‘Dress’ and ‘Sheela-Na-Gig.’
July 24 also sees the release of the 11 track DRY- Demos, previously released with DRY almost 30 years ago, and now available for the first time as a stand-alone vinyl/CD/digital release. Listen to ‘Sheela-Na-Gig’ demo here.
This catalogue project will celebrate every aspect of Harvey’s recording career and afford a comprehensive and exciting look at the evolution of one of the most singular artists of modern times.
