Judging by the first single/video, A Woman a Man Walked By is going to be full of testosterone, distortion and sexual innuendo. Though I enjoyed the chilling piano ballads that defined White Chalk, I'm quite pleased that Polly Jean has returned to her grungier roots. See for yourself.
The new album comes via Island on March 30 (less than 10 days). Easily my most anticipated of 2009 thus far.
