Portishead Back in Studio for New Direction?

Portishead fans waited over a decade for their third album to appear, and might have thought they’d be waiting even longer for the fourth. Happily, band member/producer Geoff Barrow has confirmed that the band is writing new material already! He also added that they are approaching the recording "from a different angle", which is interesting given that the third album, with its harsher, angular sounds, differed so much from the first two. Equally as intriguing is how they’ll release it, as they aren’t currently signed to any record label. This doesn’t seem to be worrying Barrow much: "We are publishing-free and label-free at the moment, so we're kind of… well, we're free!"
