Today, Porter Robinson’s newest single was released, “Look at the Sky.” The single has Porter’s smooth waves of sound and had fans excited for something new from the American DJ. Then, we were hit with a second surprise.
Porter took to social media to announce today that not only was “Look at the Sky” being released today, but he has a date set for his newest album release. The album, Nurture, is set to come out on April 23rd. Porter, in his announcement, very excitedly highlighted that it was April 23, 2021(!!).
If you can’t wait, you can pre-order Nurture on vinyl, cd, digital, or streaming pre-save here. With the announcement came the cover art for the album, which shows someone faceplanted in a flowery field. It seems like the mood after the past year, and we can’t wait for this album to nurture our Porter-loving souls.
‘Look at the Sky’ is fundamentally a song about hope,” Robinson said in a press release. He continued:
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. 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.
See the announcement below? Will YOU be pre-ordering his album?
