PORTER ROBINSON's biggest tour yet. Following the arrival of his upcoming "SMILE :D" album this July, the man is kicking off his WORLD TOUR hitting key cities across North America, Europe, and Asia. An all-out American DJ turned popstar for his hard-hitting hits and singer-songwriting talent, his new singles "Cheerleader" and "Knock Yourself Out XD" offers a glimpse of what to expect from his new record. One thing's for sure, we're all in smiles!

In a feature by The Independent, "SMILE :D" is an "unabashed pop record that’s by turns bombastic and vulnerable." Well, you can definitely tell what he means by this on "Cheerleader", a track that shares indie and pop-punk vibes in the mix. It reflects his journey and growth in music, from the rave scene down to owning his game as a singer-songwriter. "Even on those arrogant cocky tracks, it’s honest... Because it speaks to how I wish I could be," he added. With empowering and uplifting tracks in the mix, the album finds him a step closer to finding truth.

From the European dance scene and onto mainstream American shores, Robinson found himself in the middle of it. all. Recalling a meltdown in Australia, struck by the thought if he actually likes what he's doing. Straying away from his DJ reputation, Robinson is stripping it all off with "SMILE :D". Moving away from his EDM roots which we witnessed with his 2014 album "Worlds" and 2021's "Nurture", he's now an artist in his own game.

His ambient-pop album "Nurture" allowed Robinson to share his new perspective in life and his music. Overcoming life's hurdles and questions about who he is, the dance star found his groove once again. In an interview with NME in 2021, he said he "felt really convinced that I wouldn’t be able to ever make music again. And that was always my greatest fear."

With a vulnerable and personal album up his sleeve, Nurture balanced pop and ambient sounds, described as how Porter "crawled my way out of how I was feeling," connecting with life and nature.

This time, he's taking his music to the next level - hoping all of us would "SMILE :D". With pop-punk and indie vibes teased, we're expecting hot and fresh bangers from the pop star. His previous albums shared his singles "Sea of Voices", "Sad Machine", "Lionhearted" featuring Urban Cone, "Something Comforting", "Look at the Sky", and "Untold" with Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs. Now, we can truly expect big sonic surprises from Robinson.
