PJ Harvey

PJ Harvey will return to the Eden Sessions with ASUS to headline a show on Monday June 27.

Harvey, who played at Eden in 2003, is the only artist to win the Mercury Prize twice (in 2001 for Stories from the City, Stories from the Sea, and in 2011 for Let England Shake).

She is due to release her ninth studio album, The Hope Six Demolition Project, in April. The album was recorded during a month-long residency in London’s Somerset House, where audiences were given the opportunity to see Harvey at work with her band and producers in a purpose-built studio.

Besides music, Harvey is an accomplished sculptor, poet, actor and composer. She was awarded an MBE in 2013 for services to music.

Rita Broe, Eden’s marketing director, said: “PJ Harvey is one of the most vibrant, diverse artists ever to hail from these shores and we’re very excited to be welcoming her back to Eden, 13 years after she played her first magical show here.

 

“She is known for her continued innovation and it’s going to be a real treat to see her perform material from her new album in our spectacular environment.”
