Harp player Joanna Newsom has revealed that her upcoming new album will be a triple LP.

The singer-songwriter's new record, Have One on Me, is set to be released on February 23rd 2010.

It is a follow-up to 2006's Ys, a chiefly orchestral record that was recently named among the albums of the decade by both Pitchfork and Mojo.

One person looking forward to the arrival of the harp player's new record is Sean Michaels, a music journalist at the Guardian.

"Newsom is notorious for her meticulous compositions and conspicuous virtuosity – instrumental, lyrical and conceptual," he said.

Earlier this week, Newsom made one of Have One on Me's new tracks, '81, available on the internet.

It is a stripped-down track, featuring Newsom playing solo on her harp and singing lyrics about "love and trust in the Garden of Eden", said Michaels, who added that it was a complex tune "not meant for humming".
