PORTER ROBINSON REVEALS ANTHEMIC NEW SINGLE FROM THE DEBUT ALBUM ‘WORLDS’

Porter Robinson has revealed ‘Lionhearted’ the propulsive next single from his highly anticipated debut album ‘Worlds’. Out June 17th, the driving alt-electronic anthem is an infectious, radio-ready track that showcases Porter’s pop prowess and superior song craft. Featuring surging vocals from Swedish indie outfit Urban Cone, ‘Lionhearted’ pushes-and-pulls between ambient sighs and power chords resulting in one of the summer’s most undeniable jams.

‘Worlds’ – out August 12th – kicks off with the swelling ‘Divinity’ featuring Amy Millan of Stars which trickles into the brand new #1 HypeM single ‘Sad Machine’ (Porter’s vocal debut in a duet with a robot) which premiered via FADER and was selected as a top track of the week by both Billboard and Stereogum upon its release in May.

The album’s first single ‘Sea of Voices’ trended #1 on Facebook when it was leaked to Porter’s fans via Twitter during the Oscars earlier this year and quickly shot to #2 on the iTunes electronic chart and #5 on HypeM, #5 on Spotify’s viral chart. It has surpassed more than 1 million Soundcloud plays to date.

Additional album highlights include the glitched-out avant centerpiece ‘Fellow Feeling’ which swells from violin-driven sentiment to industrial static, before settling into palpitating chords, and ‘Years of War’ a radiant synth pop track propelled by a fuzzy beat featuring Breanne Duren (Owl City) and Sean Caskey (Last Dinosaurs). ‘Hear the Bells’ featuring Imaginary Cities prolongs the pop euphoria and ‘Polygon Dust’ a swelling electronic pop tune featuring Norwegian duo Lemaitre, who will open for Porter on the ‘Worlds’ North American Tour.

Launching August 28th the massive 40+ date tour will see headline appearances dates at the NYC’s Terminal 5, LA’s Shrine Auditorium, and the 9:30 Club in Washington DC with Porter manipulating multi-tracks, triggering samples, playing midi keys and using controllers to create a fully-live affair that stands in stark contrast to his previous DJ appearances.
