Porter Robinson returned recently with ‘Look at the Sky’ and has now unveiled the video for the fantastic single.
The video, directed by Chris Muir and choreographed by Matty Peacock (Billie Eilish, Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez), is a rather ghostly affair but with celestial influences.
The track is from “Nurture”, Robinson’s first album in seven years, which is due out on 23 April via Mom+Pop label.
‘Look At The Sky’ is a layered pop tune that reverberates heavily, displaying feelings of insecurity that are being cast aside for a more confident, swaying melody bursting with optimism following introspection.
“I wanted to represent the things we all contribute to this world, and how they last even after we’re gone,” Porter says about the video, which he creative-directed alongside Samuel Burgess-Johnson (The 1975, Tove Lo, The Japanese House). “When I make music in a room by myself, I’m not truly working alone—someone else invented the piano, the computer, the software, even the ideas of melody, chord, harmony and scale. We’re always collaborating with a limitless number of people we don’t know, most of whom aren’t around anymore. We’re all contributing something to the world with our every action, for better or for worse. When we’re gone, let’s hope that the things we leave behind will be useful and beautiful.”Porter Robinson
The anticipated forthcoming intimate album is one that is expected to ‘champion the power of vulnerability while paying homage to the struggles that pushed him to grow.’
