Porter Robinson says,

“‘Look at the Sky is fundamentally a song about hope. There’s no shortage of fuel for despair, but you can’t take meaningful action to improve things if you don’t have some belief that things might get better. That’s what hope is, and I think it’s an emotion worth nourishing. I wrote this song at my lowest point emotionally, when I thought I couldn’t make music anymore, and I wasn’t sure if my existence would have any meaning if I couldn’t make music. In the lyrics, I’m sort of imagining what life would be like once I was on the other side of all that fear and anxiety and sadness. I’m happy to report that it’s amazing on the other side of all this, and I’m so glad I had hope and persisted.”

‘Look At the Sky’ first debuted during Porter Robinson’s Secret Sky livestream event last May, following the first three singles from Nurture – ‘Mirror’, Get Your Wish’, and ‘Something Comforting’.

Nurture spans a highly challenging period in Porter’s life. Following his 2014 debut Worlds, which found Porter headlining festivals worldwide and being heralded as a wunderkind of a burgeoning new style of electronic music, Porter began to experience severe anxiety under the pressure of his success to a degree that was creatively crippling, smothered by his own self-criticism and high expectations.

Through much personal work, the artist began to experiment with a completely new sound which eventually became the critically acclaimed side project Virtual Self. After some time, he finally returned to the piano and his own voice as the basis for the next evolution in his sound. Nurture is the resulting document of this period, a testament to hope and persistence in the face of the negative voices in one’s own head.

‘Nurture”s physical orders are available in standard vinyl, standard retail vinyl, and deluxe vinyl box set. The standard vinyl comes in opaque white vinyl discs whereas the standard retail vinyl comes in clear vinyl discs. Both feature a matte finish gatefold jacket as well as the Nurture lyric booklet.

The deluxe vinyl box set includes opaque white vinyl and deluxe gatefold jacket with boxset-exclusive alternate album art, six 7” singles with box set-exclusive alternate album art and a Nurture hardcover artbook plus complete lyric booklet.
