By the looks of things, Porter Robinson may have something bigger than a track or two coming down the pipeline. Somewhere between his Grammy nomination and the two Virtual Self shows coinciding with the awards ceremony, the Chapel Hill, North Carolina DJ/producer also appears to be gearing up for a new creative endeavor.
That's what he told GQ Japan, in any event. The publication tweeted an image of Robinson with an excerpt from his feature in their upcoming March issue to that effect. "Right now, I am making music and enjoying it. I'm not feeling as much pressure as I used to, and am trying to just live as a human while creating," reads a translation of his quote. "I am planning a new project."
Robinson hasn't released a studio-length album since 2014's Worlds, which arguably marked his coming of age as a producer. That being said, he has yet to reveal whether his new project is an album, an EP, or something else altogether.
Porter Robinson also has yet to disclose a time frame for his new project. Following his second Shrine Expo Hall performance tonight, he is slated to perform as Virtual Self at III Points Festival in Miami, Florida on February 15th.
