Porter Robinson and his latest album landed at their new home of Astralwerks today, who will be releasing his new material in 2014.
According to a press release, Robinson’s album is near finished and will be released alongside other newcomers to the white-hot label, like the recently enlisted deadmau5 as well as Mat Zo.
Robinson says the new album is going to be “beautiful, emotional, and vast-sounding.” Describing it as listening music and not party music, Robinson said he’s grown tired of the “formulaic” nature of electronic music and set out to record a departure from the main stage with a vintage-inspired, lo-fi, nostalgic vibe to it. He considers the result his favorite music he’s ever made.
In an exclusive with Billboard, Robinson explained the long process behind shopping what his management calls a multi-hit album to numerous labels before arriving at label-land’s newest hotspot. Read the full story here, and check back soon for what will undoubtedly be a massively influential sophomore album from one of the game’s hottest commodities.
