Acclaimed producer Porter Robinson deals with overcoming the critical inner voice within with new track ‘Mirror’, the third release from his forthcoming second album Nurture.

Porter Robinson has shared new track ‘Mirror’ from his upcoming second album Nurture.

Robinson says of the track,

“‘Mirror’ is a song about the costs of being hard on yourself. We all have these avatars that we give to our critical inner voices – we might imagine a scornful parent telling us we’ll fail, or a critic telling us our work comes up short, or a society telling us that we aren’t good enough – it’s about recognizing that most of this criticism is self-inflicted. For years, I was imagining the worst thing a critic might say about my music and looking at my own work as negatively as possible as a way to protect myself from criticism, but it never once served me. My hope is that other people can overcome this same kind of shame – it can be really liberating to recognize that most of the time, we’re only letting our own thoughts get in the way, and we can do something about it.” 

The motivational track is the third single following ‘Something Comforting’ and ‘Get Your Wish’. the latter which has been praised by The Fader as “a skittish glimmer of a track that climbs its way up to total euphoria.”

The single also follows the release of his DJ NOT PORTER ROBINSON and chiptune band Anamanaguchi’s remixes for the album’s first single ‘Get Your Wish’.
