Porter Robinson’s album is almost done, and he’s all kinds of hyped

If you follow Porter Robinson on Twitter, you’d know that he’s deep in the making of his debut album. It’s been a process that’s stretched over the last year-and-a-half, with regular interruptions to tour the world. Now, the work is almost done. Today, the 21-year-old producer took to his Facebook page to give fans an update on all things Porter. The post comes midway through his Southeast Asia tour, before he heads down to Australia for a string of sold-out shows.

Here’s the capital-letter-averse Facebook report: “it’s really close to done. this record focuses on being emotional and beautiful and vast-sounding and i feel more strongly about it than anything i’ve ever done in my life. i’m also art directing the whole multimedia aspect of the album – i don’t want to give away exactly what that means quite yet, but i’m spending no insignificant amount of time on it.”

As ever, the Language hitmaker also had a word for his fans. “it’s been so cool and weird encountering fans in the streets of places i’ve never set foot on before – the earnest love i feel from total strangers is seriously moving,” he wrote. “knowing that real people care about your music and shows and taste, even after three years, is more inspiring than you’d think. i guess that’s one advantage established artists have. thank you guys.” You can read the full post on Facebook.

That Australian tour kicks off in Adelaide this time next week, before rolling through Canberra, the Gold Coast, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth as well as fitting in no fewer than three Sydney shows. Porter’s also joining the likes of Digitalism and Booka Shade on the bill at Newcastle’s Fat As Butter festival, and he’ll be back in March 2014 to head around the country with Future Music Festival.
