Contrary to reports that April’s ten years in the making album Third would be their last release, Portishead have revealed they will record another album together.
Guitarist Adrian Utley has also exclusively told 6 Music why the band are not going to be playing in the future.
“We are thinking a new album,” he said. “That’s partly why we’re not touring enormously, because in 1998 we toured for a year and a bit and it just crashed us. None of us wanted to see each other for a while after that.”…
…The Bristol trio’s last tour was a fairly short jaunt but Utley explained that they have family now, as well as different projects on the go which they want to work on: “We’re all gonna be doing stuff. We’ve finished our touring for this album for this year because of things that we want to do.” [BBC 6 Music]
