PJ Harvey’s complete back catalogue will be reissued on vinyl in an extensive catalogue project by UMC/Island and Beggar Records.

Held over the next 12 months, the campaign aims 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.”

As part of the reissue campaign, Harvey’s album demos – which were previously packaged with original album pressings – will also receive standalone releases on vinyl, CD and digital formats, for the first time.

Harvey’s celebrated debut album, Dry, will be the first receive a vinyl reprint, launching alongside the 11-track Dry – Demos via Beggar Archives and Too Pure Records on 24 July.  This marks the first time that Dry – originally released on 30 March 1992 – has been printed onto vinyl in 20 years.

Subsequent releases are said to also include both of Harvey’s collaborative albums with John Parish: 1996’s Dance Hall at Louse Point and 2009’s A Woman A Man Walked By.

No indication has yet been made as to whether the reissue campaign would stretch to include Harvey’s compilation releases such as The Peel Sessions 1991–2004 or The B Sides from 1995.
