Following up on the unexpected release of the live edit of “Shepherdess,” Porter Robinson has unveiled off his upcoming sophomore album.
Serving as the third single off of Nurture, “Mirror” is a beaming production driven by lush piano chords and an airy, distorted vocals offering from the mastermind behind the blissful track.
“‘Mirror’ is a song about the costs of being hard on yourself,” Robinson says. “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.”
