Portishead are looking to their fans to help them promote their next album, since the trio is yet another band free from a record contract.
Member Geoff Barrow recently left a MySpace Blog entitled “The Future” and, here’s what he had to say:
“We spent the day discussing the future of the P as we are free… well free of a deal and free of commitment… for now!”
The multi-instrumentalist went on to state:
“With the world being the way it is there are lots of options open…” and he added “But if you lot have any bright ideas of how we should sell our music in the future lets us know, why not!”
But, if your hoping that the band will give away the album for free, you may be a bit disappointed.
“I don’t think that were into giving out music away for free to be honest… it f***in’ takes ages to write and we have to heat our swimming pools…!!!”
Does anyone else find that funny?
Anyways, the band confirmed last December that they were working on the follow to their third album, cleverly titled Third, which came out last year.
If you’re a Portishead fan, this is an awesome opportunity. Who knows? Maybe you could start something big.
