Originally released on 2nd May 2011, Mick Harvey’s sixth studio solo album Sketches From The Book Of The Dead is being reissued on clear vinyl, alongside 2013’s Four (Acts of Love), with Delirium Tremens and Intoxicated Women set to follow later in 2023.

Sketches From The Book Of The Dead is Mick Harvey's first fully self-penned album; the 11-track album was recorded and mixed with David McCluney at Atlantis Sound, Port Melbourne with additional recording at Harvey's own Grace Lane music room. The record sees Mick Harvey (playing most of the instruments) joined by Rosie Westbrook on double bass and J.P. Shilo on accordion and violin, with Xanthe Waite contributing occasional ethereal backing vocals. Containing an extraordinary investigation into a rarely scrutinised area of the human condition, Sketches From The Book Of The Dead is a truly unique piece of work.

“It's a tantalizing glimpse of how great solo Harvey can be...” - Pitchfork

“Harvey’s direct production style – sparse, dusty and frequently drum-free – draws attention to the lyrics, a collection of outback eulogies and austere Australiana, which are frequently astonishing...” - The Line of Best Fit
