Dry may refer to a state lacking moisture[?], a high alcohol content in alcoholic beverages, and is the name of a music album (below).

Recorded at the Icehouse, Yeovil[?], UK, PJ Harvey's Dry was released twice, firstly on Too Pure accompanied with a limited edition Demonstration LP, and subsequently on Indigo Records. Both versions were released in 1992.

Received as well in the States as the UK, this album prompted Rolling Stone magazine to name Harvey Best Songwriter and Best New Female Singer. In spite of the acclaim, "Sheela Na-Gig" was the only single to chart in the US, at #9 on Billboard's Modern Rock singles chart.
