"Nurture" will arrive on April 23.
Spring is often considered a hopeful time, and Porter Robinson is looking to make the most of the season. On Wednesday (Jan. 27), the producer announced that his much-anticipated sophomore album, Nurture, will drop April 23 via Mom + Pop. The album is Robinson's first under his own name in seven years.
The news comes alongside Nurture's fourth single, "Look at the Sky." The shimmering, propulsive and ultimately joyful track was written during a moment of personal crisis for the North Carolina-based producer, who has dealt with crippling anxiety since he blew up upon the release of his 2014 hit debut album Worlds, and whose personal challenges multiplied when his brother was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer.
“‘Look at the Sky' is fundamentally a song about hope,” Robinson says in a press release. “There’s no shortage of fuel for despair, but you can’t take meaningful action to improve things if you don’t have some belief that things might get better. That’s what hope is, and I think it’s an emotion worth nourishing.
