Celebrated musician PJ Harvey has announced a vinyl reissue of her fifth album, 2000's Stories From the City, Stories From the Sea - due out on February 26th.
As part of her ongoing reissue series, the vinyl will be released alongside Stories From the City, Stories From the Sea: Demos, a collection of unreleased demos of every track on the album.
Produced by Harvey with Rob Ellis and Mick Harvey, the album features tracks ‘Good Fortune’, ‘A Place Called Home’, ‘This Is Love’ and includes a duet with Radiohead‘s Thom Yorke on ‘This Mess We’re In’.
In terms of accolades, Stories From The City, Stories From The Sea earned the singer-songwriter Grammy Award nominations for Best Rock Album and Best Female Rock Performance and the Mercury Music Prize for Best Album.
The campaign is being ran by UMC/Island and Beggars, who are aiming to “celebrate every aspect of Harvey’s recording career and afford a comprehensive and exciting look at the evolution of one of the most singular and extraordinary artists of modern times”.
Later this month, Harvey will reissue Is This Desire?, also with a new demo collection.
Over the last 12 months, Harvey has reissued her albums Dry, Rid of Me, To Bring You My Love, and Dance Hall at Louse Point. 2011's Let England Shake was made the Hot Press Album of the Year.
