Porter Robinson has announced his first album in seven years. The follow-up to the songwriter and producer’s 2014 debut, Worlds, is called Nurture and arrives April 23 via Mom + Pop. Below, hear the new single ‘Look at the Sky’ and check out the album’s cover artwork.
““Look At The Sky” is fundamentally a song about hope,” Robinson said in a press release.” 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.”
