British singer-songwriter PJ Harvey, whose new album, Let England Shake, drops on Valentine’s Day via Vagrant Records, has signed a global co-publishing deal with EMI Music Publishing. Harvey was previously assigned to EMI Music Publishing from 1992-2001. The new publishing deal covers Let England Shake as well as Harvey’s back catalog, from 1992’s Dry to 2000’s Stories From the City, Stories From the Sea.
“With a new album coming out next month, and her amazing catalogue of songs, we have a strong foundation upon which to build a lasting creative relationship,” said Daniel Lloyd-Jones, EMI Music Publishing’s Senior A&R Manager. “I see no limit to what can be achieved with PJ. As a songwriter, producer and musician she’s right up there with the very best that Britain has to offer, and we’re looking forward to working with her to help her maximise the reach of her music.”
Harvey, who will play this year’s Coachella Festival on April 17, will perform April 14 at the Warfield Theater in San Francisco and April 20 at Terminal 5 in New York in support of Let England Shake.
