Portugal The Man makes a grand return with “What, Me Worry?”

Date:

 

Portugal The Man found well-deserved success with 2017’s Woodstock and its inescapable lead single “Feel It Still”; a band that I saw play to a room of 20 people ten years ago was suddenly winning Grammys, landing a #1 hit, and decimating festival stages everywhere. It’s somewhat surreal that we’ve gone nearly five years without new music from the Alaskan group — that changes today with the release of “What, Me Worry?” ahead of their forthcoming ninth album and arena tour with Alt-J this spring.

“What, Me Worry?” has the pop pedigree of today’s radio music — it’s got production from pop guru Ryan Tedder, after all — but it still maintains the weirdness that has left PTM endeared to their fans for over a decade. It grooves a whole lot like “Feel It Still” with a hypnotic guitar line holding the entire song together alongside 60s-style string flourishes and lead singer John Gourley’s signature high-pitched vocals. That’s to say this: it’s likely to take over our world just like Woodstock did. It also has an incredible Los Güeyes-directed video coming with it — watch that below, and keep scrolling to see their forthcoming tour dates with Alt-J.
