    Here's some good news:

    Harvey says she is close to completing her new studio album and intends to showcase it at Glastonbury this year.

    The singer says the new LP is "ugly and disturbing" compared to her last two.

    She is planning to release the album later this year, ahead of a UK tour.

    Harvey is also collaborating with Queens of the Stone Age for the 9th Desert Sessions album along with former Marilyn Manson bass player Twiggy.

    "With every album I tend to react against the previous one in an effort to find new ground," she told Radio 1.

    "With this record, it's pretty ugly really. Quite an ugly sounding batch of songs. Quite disturbing, quite dark, quite bluesy.

    "At the moment it's feeling good. I just go by how my guts feel."

    I wish she'd go back to the style of Rid Of Me... Too polished since, imo. Not "raw" enough.

    Rid of me is definitely my favorite recording from her. But the others aren't too bad either.

    Certianly "Rid of Me" and "Dry" are great albums, but don't dismiss the last couple, especially "Stories From the City, Stories from the Sea". Yes, it's a bit more polished than some of the others, but I find it to be her most "complete" album. It works great as cohesive work from the first note to last. After forcing a friend to listen to it, his description was "absolutely compelling" which I thought summed it up pretty well.

    Looking forward to anything else she does... an amazing live performer as well (I've seen her about 10 times or so).

    Anything she does is pure gold in my book. Can't wait.
