Portishead to reissue 20th anniversary edition of Dummy

Portishead are to reissue their 1994 album Dummy to celebrate its 20th anniversary.

Earlier this year Portishead's Adrian Utley has said that the band members are "clearing our schedules" in order to work on their fourth album.

Utley was speaking at By:Larm Festival in Oslo on February 27 and said. "We're clearing our schedules so we can get on with it, otherwise it will be another 10 years," he commented, referencing how busy the members of the band are with other projects. Utley added that he had recently discussed plans for the follow-up to 2008's 'Third' with Geoff Barrow, saying: "We were both really enthusiastic, and enthusiasm counts for a lot in Portishead world."
