Mick Harvey Sets Release

(PR) Internationally renowned arranger, producer, multi instrumentalist, film soundtrack composer and co-founder of The Birthday Party and Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds, Australian musician Mick Harvey returns with the new album, "Two Of Diamonds" – the follow up to 2005's "One Man's Treasure" – out on Mute July 17, 2007.

For the eagerly awaited "Two Of Diamonds," the redoubtable Harvey accompanied by his solo band, featuring Rosie Westbrook (double bass) and fellow Bad Seed James Johnston (organ and guitar) and Thomas Wydler (drums). Guest musicians on two tracks also include Rob Ellis from P.J. Harvey's band (piano/drums), who has also toured with Mick, and Julitha Ryan (piano) from Melbourne instrumental band Silver Ray.

"Two Of Diamonds," mostly recorded at Harvey's Grace Lane Studio and Atlantis Studios, in Melbourne Australia, features an eclectic collection of songs which Harvey has chosen to interoperate in his own distinctive and emotive style. Some are original Harvey compositions (the dream-like 'Blue Arrows' and the graceful 'Little Star'), and, as with ‘One Man’s Treasure’ these are combined with more obscure classics, sometimes stemming from the pens of well known enigmatic songwriters such as PJ Harvey. What once again unites this timeless material is Mick Harvey's deeply personal connection with every song included on "Two Of Diamonds." The recorded interpretive work of Nina Simone and Johnny Cash, two of Mick Harvey's favourite artists, still inspire him to grasp the essence of his elected material and make it his own.
Harvey begins a European tour in support of "Two of Diamonds" in April 2007.
