Songwriter and producer Porter Robinson has announced his next album Nurture, marking his first LP since his 2014 debut Worlds. The new record arrives April 23 via Mom + Pop. Today (January 27), Robinson has shared the new song “Look at the Sky.” Check it out below.

“‘Look at the Sky’ is fundamentally a song about hope,” Robinson said in a press release. He continued:

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. I wrote this song at my lowest point emotionally, when I thought I couldn’t make music anymore, and I wasn’t sure if my existence would have any meaning if I couldn’t make music. In the lyrics, I’m sort of imagining what life would be like once I was on the other side of all that fear and anxiety and sadness. I’m happy to report that it’s amazing on the other side of all this, and I’m so glad I had hope and persisted.

According to press materials, Nurture arrives after a difficult period for Robinson, which included anxiety related to the pressures of success, as well as his brother’s diagnosis with a rare and aggressive cancer. In the past few years, Robinson made a return to songwriting, experimenting with piano, digital synths, and artificially pitched vocals.
