Joanna Newsom has confirmed she is working on new material, her first in five years.

Speaking to Dazed, the singer-songwriter commented: “I’m working on something new – I should hopefully have a little more news soon. I’ve been working hard for a lot of those five years on a new idea.”

Joanna Newsom released her third album, Have One On Me, in 2010. It followed her acclaimed 2004 debut The Milk-Eyed Mender and 2006’s Ys. In 2012 Newsom unveiled two new songs during live performances, “The Diver’s Wife” and “Look And Despair”.

Newsom will appear in new film Inherent Vice, which will hit UK cinemas in January 2015. Discussing her part in the production, she said: “This movie was so incredibly rewarding and fun for me, and it did maybe defer some of my music work for a while, but it was totally worth it.”
