New Portishead on its way

Via The NYTimes: "on April 29 Portishead releases 'Third' (Mercury/Island), its third studio album and the sequel to 'Portishead,' from 1997. 'Third' is more polymorphous, more extreme, more propulsive and often harsher than previous Portishead albums. Instead of mellowing with age or returning to a signature sound, the band has fractured and splintered that sound, plunging even deeper into loneliness and anxiety."

The album will be streamed free online at LastFM beginning April 21.
