Porter Robinson has recently been rolling out singles for his forthcoming sophomore album, Nurture. The post-Worlds project already has three introspective and alluring singles—”Get Your Wish,” “Something Comforting,” and “Mirror,” respectively.

No release date has been given for Nurture, but fans can guess that the album will be just what we need for the hardships of 2020 in particular.
