Having previously revealed that a new album was in the works, seminal Bristolian trip-hop collective Portishead have announced that it will be called Third and go on sale on April 14.
Appropriately, this is the band´s third full-length studio record, and it arrives after a long hiatus. It´s been a decade since Portishead´s last release, the Roseland NYC Live album, and their most recent ‘proper´ album was 1997´s Portishead. Prior to that, the band won the 1995 Mercury Music Prize for their influential debut release, Dummy.
The tracklisting for Third is as follows:
3. Nylon Smile
4. The Rip
6. We Carry On
7. Deep Water
8. Machine Gun
10. Magic Doors
