Trending Now

Portishead have appealed to fans for ideas on how to release their next album.

Follow the release of last year’s ‘Third’, voted Uncut’s Album of 2008, the band are now free from their contract with Universal Music.

“We’re free of a deal and free of commitment,” Geoff Barrow wrote on the band’s myspace blog. “With the world being the way it is there are lots of options open. But if you lot have any bright ideas of how we should sell our music in the future let us know”

One option the band reject however is a Radiohead-style free give away.

“I don’t think that were into giving out music away for free to be honest. It fuckin’ takes ages to write, and we have to heat our swimming pools!”
