Portishead Thrived On Misery Recording New Album

April 7, 2008
Portishead Thrived On Misery Recording New AlbumPortishead’s Geoff Barrow has explained why it has taken them a decade to release their new album, ‘Third’.

Barrow says that their most fruitful recording sessions came when they were in a negative mind-frame, so they had to wait long periods to be inspired.

He explained to today’s Metro “Our albums are born out of frustration, whether it be Bristol city council, frustration with human’s lack of ability to communicate with each other or whether you’ve heard some really shit song and it drives you to write a better one. They’re not born in a comfortable place”

He admitted the band needed to be in an “incredibly miserable, unpleasant place to write anything,” hence the long delay since second album ‘Portishead’.

Portishead’s third album, ‘Third’, is released on April 28. The single ‘Machine Gun’ comes out a week today.
