Just hours after the Violent Femmes announced plans to release their first full length album in 16 years, ’90s rock goddess PJ Harvey has followed suit.

The rocker, who has not released an album since 2011’s Let England Shake, has officially announced that a new album is coming in 2016. The unnamed album — inspired by her visits to Kosovo, Afghanistan and Washington, DC — was recorded in front of a live audience during her month-long residency at London’s Somerset House.

“I want ‘Recording in Progress’ to operate as if we’re an exhibition in a gallery,” Harvey previously said in a statement. “I hope people will see the attention and the labor and the care that goes into making a recording. I hope people will see the interactions between everyone involved.”

Thankfully, she’s not leaving fans empty handed. Harvey posted a 30 second teaser of her new single on Twitter — and it’s just as amazing as you’d expect. The album is set to be released sometime next spring; but in the meantime, check out her moody teaser below.
