Porter Robinson has returned with his bright new track "Musician", which lands as the latest preview of his first album in seven years, Nurture.

"Musician" is Robinson's second release of 2021, following January's "Look at the Sky", and will appear on Nurture alongside earlier outings "Mirror", "Something Comforting" and "Get Your Wish".

Robinson says of the new single, ""Musician" was one of the very last songs written for Nurture. The song is meant to feel like a celebration, like I'm reveling in the joy of newfound inspiration. If the rest of Nurture is about me trying to find hope for the future, "Musician" is like a celebration of that hope materialising. It was one of the last songs that I wrote for the album, and it's honestly a celebration of the album itself. That's where the title comes from. It's like, ‘Alright, I've found my footing, and I know I can really do this now.’ And I just tried to throw all of my rules away and have as much fun as possible. Ironically enough, this is the least sad song on the album, but this is the song that makes me cry. It's the fun one. I just sound so happy on that song."

Nurture will follow Robinson's 2014 debut album Worlds, and is described in a press release as a "hopeful, intimate album that champions the power of vulnerability while paying homage to the struggles that pushed him to grow."

"Musician" is out now. Porter Robinson's Nurture album will be released 23 April via Mom+Pop, and is available to pre-order now.
