Harvey last appeared on the show in April 2010 debuting the title track from her yet to be released new album 'Let England Shake', to an audience including then Prime Minister Gordon Brown one week ahead of the General Election.
'Let England Shake', released on 14th February 2011 on Island Records, was awarded the 2011 Barclaycard Mercury Prize for Album of the Year at last month's ceremony, ten years after Harvey's previous win for Stories From The City, Stories From The Sea.
PJ Harvey is the first woman to win the award as well as the first artist to win for a second time, with the Guardian commenting that 'it was a victory for her intelligent, soulful music, and an album that resonates with our war torn times.'
PJ Harvey and her live band (John Parish, Mick Harvey and Jean-Marc Butty) return to the UK this Autumn for two sold-out shows at London's Royal Albert Hall on October 30th and 31st.
