Porter Robinson at Hard Summer Music Festival 2016

Porter Robinson – Get Your Wish

Dropping the bombshell on fans not long ago, Porter Robinson announced his new album Nurture‘ due for release some time this year (specific date to be specified shortly), and his fan base – and fellow producer friends in the industry – almost broke the internet going crazy with excitement for another new album cycle for the first time since ‘Worlds’ way back in 2014. Along with the album name announcement, his newest single was also announced titled ‘Get your Wish’.

Opening up on Twitter about his thought process behind the creation of the brand new track, he explains that the track is about finding a reason to keep pushing forward and to carry on even when times are tough. He opens up about his struggles with the music world between 2015-early 2017 and wondered if it was worth trying anymore. Eventually, he started to get his groove back and push forward enough to start creating things that he was happy with again and this resulted in the music that we’re going to be hearing from him this year. He finishes off his mini statement with the powerful line “Making music started to make me happy again.”, and it’s inspiring to know that even the best of the best can go through rough patches creatively.

‘Get your Wish’ is simultaneously different from any other track he’s released whilst also staying true to his iconic signature sound. The vocal style makes it seem like someone else is singing, but it’s Porter himself singing through artificial effects to pitch up his voice, an interesting creative choice that elevates the song even further. We can pinpoint the iconic piano-like synths that are a Porter Robinson staple, and it ties back to his older work whilst also telling us that this a completely different era of his music, and we’re ready to embrace it all.

If the new music wasn’t enough, he treated fans to an official music video. Working closely with Samuel Burgess-Johnson (who is heavily involved with creative direction for The 1975) for extra creative direction, it’s arguably one of the most aesthetically pleasing music videos from an electronic artist. Not over the top, it’s simplicity is what is truly effective in a massive way, and it serves as the best visual accompaniment. Be sure to check out the description on the video for the full list of talented crew members who worked hard to put together the masterpiece.
