The Dorset legend will also release one of her first recordings as a b-side

PJ Harvey has revealed the first single to be taken from her new album, “White Chalk”.

Released on September 17, “When Under Ether” will also feature b-side “Wait”, one of the first tracks recorded by Harvey in 1988.

“White Chalk” is released on September 24, and the singer-songwriter will play a special one-off show at Bristol’s Colton Hall that night. The gig, like Harvey’s other recent performances, will be a solo show.

PJ Harvey’s new album is her seventh studio album (or eighth, if you choose to count “Four-Track Demos”. Or ninth, if you include the “Dance Hall At Louse Point” collaboration with John Parish. It’s confusing!) and the follow-up to 2004’s “Uh Huh Her”.
