Portishead have blasted back with news that not only do they have a new a new record deal with an as of yet to be named label, but they'll also release an album this year.

Speaking in an interview to Rodrigo Davies from BBC's 6 Music at this year's Glastonbury festival, band leader Geoff Barrow said a new Portishead full length album is on the way.

He spoke optimistically about potential outside of the U.K. saying that the last Portishead release didn't get much radio airplay, but the band was well received at the 2009 Coachella Festival in the U.S.

He'll be writing music through July and August, and said that the record deal was with "the biggest major label in the world," and was "with the people [they] really trust." Listen to the interview on the player up above.
