We have another Nurture music drop today from Porter Robinson! You can now stream “mirror” on all streaming platforms. The announcement of “Nurture” has had fans waiting on the edge of their seats and hungry for more music. After taking some time to himself to work on his mental health, Porter is back in album mode and ready to share his art with the “Worlds” yet again. You can catch his first two singles that were released from “Nurture” online now entitled “Something Comforting” and “Get Your Wish”. “Get Your Wish” has some wonderful remixes already from DJ NOT PORTER ROBINSON (wink wink) and Anamanaguchi. With the release of “mirror” porter sent the following message to his fans,
mirror is a song about the costs of being hard on yourself.
we all have these avatars that we give to our critical inner voices – we might imagine a scornful parent telling us we’ll fail, or a critic telling us our work comes up short, or a society telling us that we aren’t good enough – it’s about recognizing that most of this criticism is self-inflicted. for years, i was imagining the worst thing a critic might say about my music and looking at my own work as negatively as possible as a way to protect myself from criticism, but it never once served me. my hope is that other people can overcome this same kind of shame – it can be really liberating to recognize that most of the time, we’re only letting our own thoughts get in the way, and we can do something about it.
