Portishead‘s new album is a “departure” from their previous albums.
Third, which is out on April 28th, will see some faster tempos from the band, with some tracks hitting 120bpms. Adrian Utley said of the new record, the first in 11 years:
“It sounds nothing like ‘Dummy’ or ‘Portishead’, but it’s definitely its older brother or sister. It’s the same mindset we’ve always had, only further down the road….There was never no Portishead. It was just we’d had enough, and we didn’t have any ideas.”
