PJ Harvey Announces B-Sides, Demos, and Rarities Box Set

PJ Harvey has announced a new box set collecting music from her back catalog. B-Sides, Demos, and Rarities is due out November 4 via Island Records/Universal Music Group. The release will be available in 6xLP, 3xCD, and digital formats, and includes 59 songs spanning Harvey’s three-decade career. The box set features previously-unreleased songs, alternate versions of preexisting songs, and other material that has been previously unavailable in physical formats or on streaming services.

Ahead of the release, PJ Harvey has shared demos of three songs from the box set. “Dry” and “Missed” both first appeared on Harvey’s 1993 album Rid of Me, while “Somebody’s Down, Somebody’s Name” was originally included on the limited edition version of Harvey’s 1995 album To Bring You My Love as a B-side.

The box set was mastered by Jason Mitchell in collaboration with John Parish, who worked as a producer on PJ Harvey albums including To Bring You My Love, White Chalk, and Let England Shake, among others. It also includes rare archival photos, with art direction from Maria Mochnacz and Rob Crane.

PJ Harvey’s ninth studio album The Hope Six Demolition Project was released in 2016. Earlier this year, she released a collection of demos recorded during the making of her celebrated 2011 album Let England Shake, and has a new reissue of The Hope Six Demolition Project due out in March 2023. Island Records and Universal Music Group will also release new vinyl reissues of every album in the PJ Harvey catalog, as well as her two albums with John Parish. Preorders for each reissue are available on the official PJ Harvey merch site.
