Mick Harvey has announced details of a new solo album, FOUR (Acts of Love), out on Mute on 29 April 2013. This is the former Bad Seed and PJ Harvey collaborator’s sixth solo studio album, and the follow up to 2011’s Sketches from the Book of the Dead. FOUR (Acts of Love) is a contemplation on romantic love – it’s loss, re-awakening, our ongoing struggles with it 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) 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.
