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.
