Polly will be promoting the album with European festival appearances this summer, including a mainstage slot at Glastonbury, T in the Park and Oxygen in Ireland. European dates include a solo show at Le Zenith, Paris (as previously reported) and a headline appearance at the Primavera Festival, Barcelona. More dates, including we assume some headline dates, are to be announced.
The stage is truly set for this album as Polly's last album 'Stories From The City, Stories From The Sea' won the 2001 Mercury Prize. She also spent a summer with Josh Homme and last year dropped a noizy rock monster with him as a single for the Dessert Sessions. Last year she was also appeared on records by John Parish (who played on some of Harvey's Nineties recordings), Giant Sand, Mark Lanegan, Gordon Gano and not so long ago with Sparklehorse too. You may also remember her as a cult star of the 90s wearing lots of eyeliner and lipstick.
DiScuss: If Polly ain't the Queen of Rock, who is? If you heard any of these tracks at her shows last year (V, Eden and Tate), what did you think? What are you hoping this record sounds like? Fave Pj album? Who else should Polly fans be checking out?
