Portishead’s Geoff Barrow has posted a message on his band’s MySpace page revealing that the duo have completed the tracks for a third studio album. The long player will be the first Portishead release since their 1998 live album, ‘Roseland NYC Live'; though singer Beth Gibbons released a solo album, ‘Out Of Season’, in 2002.
Unlike Thom Yorke, Barrow’s postings are beautifully spelled, and have perfect grammar. Oh no, no they’re not: ” Weve had our meeting with the label it was really possitive….which makes the whole thing so much easier to deal with nice people…the tracks are in a right mess but sounding like a album for the first time in years their fukin a bit weird though…its great its nice to think us old gits have a few tunes in us without sounding like coffie table zero 7 – moby – chill out shit!! “
