Portishead premiere new songs

It's their first new material for nine years

Portishead have revealed their first new material in nine years.

The two songs – ’Greek Jam’ and ’Key Bored 299 03’ – have appeared on the band’s Myspace page.

The songs are the first new tracks from the band since their self-titled second album was released in 1997.

As previously reported by NME.COM, the band have been hard at work on their third album.

Founding member Geoff Barrows explained in a Myspace post:

“The tracks are in a right mess but sounding like a album for the first time in years they (are) a bit weird though. Its great – its nice to think us old gits have a few tunes in us without sounding like coffee table Zero 7Moby – chill out shit!”
