1 min read

Electronic music auteur Porter Robinson explodes back onto the scene with his electrifying new single “Cheerleader,” out today. The track arrives alongside a visually stunning music video directed by Hugh Mulhern, winner of the 2023 UKMVA Best New Director award, and creatively directed by the powerhouse duo Bradley & Pablo, known for their work with Harry Styles, Dua Lipa, and Rosalía (via Mom+Pop).

The frenetic energy of the “Cheerleader” video perfectly complements the song’s infectious energy. Robinson takes center stage, delivering his most captivating performance to date amidst a whirlwind of vibrant scenes and emotional undercurrents.

“When I returned to the studio for ‘Cheerleader,'” Robinson explains, “I challenged myself to create something that would resonate with listeners immediately, a track that sparks an instantaneous, universal, and explosive connection. ‘Cheerleader’ is my attempt to bottle that feeling.”

Self-produced, written, and sung by Robinson, “Cheerleader” pulsates with a dynamic energy. A blistering synth line lays the foundation for a soaring, shout-along chorus destined to ignite dance floors and resonate with fans both old and new. This latest offering serves as a powerful addition to Robinson’s impressive discography, which spans over a decade and includes his acclaimed 2014 debut album Worlds and Nurture, which was lauded as the #1 best album of 2021 by The FADER.
