Portishead has “big plans” for next release

As we told you last winter, Portishead has already begun work on the followup to 2008’s Third. And, if producer/instrumentalist Geoff Barrow’s recent comments to NME are worth anything, it won’t be your typical release… We’re talking Radiohead, NIN, Smashing Pumpkins type of stuff, people!

According to Barrow, the band is currently not under contract and, as a result, are weighing up options about how to release its new songs. He declined to give specifics, but said that the band has “big plans” for a new project coming “from a different angle.”

And we thought the fact we wouldn’t have to wait another 11 years for a new Portishead album was exciting…
