FOUR (Acts Of Love): CD


Sorry Sold Out

Release Date: 29 April, 2013

Former member of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds & PJ Harvey collaborator, Mick Harvey has announced details of a new solo album, FOUR (Acts of Love), out on Mute on 29 April 2013.

FOUR (Acts of Love) is a contemplation on romantic love - its loss, re-awakening, its tumultuous struggle and its place in our universe. The album is a song cycle, divided into 3 Acts.

The album features original compositions by Mick Harvey alongside a song by long time collaborator PJ Harvey (‘Glorious’) and interpretations of The Saints’ ‘The Story of Love’, Van Morrison’s ‘The Way Young Lovers Do’, Exuma’s ‘Summertime in New York’ and Roy Orbison’s ‘Wild Hearts (Run Out of Time)’.

FOUR (Acts of Love) is Mick Harvey’s sixth solo studio album, and follows 2011’s Sketches from the Book of the Dead. Harvey, renowned for his career with The Birthday Party and Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds is equally known for his soundtrack work (Chopper, To Have And To Hold, Australian Rules) and his production work (Anita Lane, Rowland S Howard and most recently PJ Harvey’s Mercury Prize winning album, Let England Shake).

FOUR (Acts of Love) was recorded at Grace Lane, North Melbourne and Atlantis Sound, Melbourne and features regular collaborators Rosie Westbrook on double bass and JP Shilo on guitar and violin.

Later this year Mick Harvey will release a box set of his songs of Serge Gainsbourg, translated into English featuring the albums Intoxicated Man (1995) and Pink Elephants (1997) and bonus tracks.
