US electronic producer Porter Robinson has announced his first solo album in seven years, Nurture. Set to arrive on Friday, 23rd April via Mom + Pop, the album will follow Robinson’s 2014 debut Worlds.
The news arrives alongside Robinson dropping new single ‘Look at the Sky’. It follows a trio of singles from the producer back in 2020 – ‘Get Your Wish’, ‘Something Comforting and ‘Mirror’.
“Look at the Sky is fundamentally a song about hope. There’s no shortage of fuel for despair, but you can’t take meaningful action to improve things if you don’t have some belief that things might get better. That’s what hope is, and I think it’s an emotion worth nourishing,” explains Robinson.
“I wrote this song at my lowest point emotionally, when I thought I couldn’t make music anymore, and I wasn’t sure if my existence would have any meaning if I couldn’t make music. In the lyrics, I’m sort of imagining what life would be like once I was on the other side of all that fear and anxiety and sadness. I’m happy to report that it’s amazing on the other side of all this, and I’m so glad I had hope and persisted.”
