Beth Gibbons, the lead singer of the band Portishead, has just released her new solo album titled Lives Outgrown. The album features 10 songs and was produced by James Ford and Gibbons. It is set to be released on May 17 through Domino Records.
In a recent Instagram post, Gibbons shared details about the album, stating that it reflects her internal experiences and the changes she has gone through in her 50 years of life. She described it as a time of saying goodbye to family, friends, and even her former self. The lyrics of the album reflect her anxieties and sleepless night ruminations, which is why she chose to title the album Lives Outgrown.
The album is based on Gibbons’ reflections on mortality, as she has experienced the loss of people close to her.
