Portishead have begun writing their fourth studio album, Portishead’s Adrian Utley said today during an interview hosted by Quietus at the By:Larm Festival in Oslo Norway.

“We’re clearing our schedules so we can get on with it, otherwise it will be another ten years,” Utley said.

Utley said he spoke to Geoff Barrow last week about the album. “We were both really enthusiastic, and enthusiasm counts for a lot in Portishead world.”

The group’s third album, Third, was released in 2008.

Here’s a live performance of “Machine Gun,” a song off Third.

And here’s “Roads” from the group’s show at Roseland in New York, 1998.
