: At least they know how to plan in advance. Maybe if Portishead put this kind of pressure on themselves they would be more productive. Of course it's not that MA don't have other things on the way...:
Preceding this, the band are set to release 'Collected', a double CD best of on March 27.
The double CD will be preceded by a single 'Live With Me' featuring Terry Callier, set to be released on March 13.
The first CD will feature songs chosen by the band including singles 'Unfinished Sympathy' and 'Protection' while the second CD will feature rare and reworked tracks as well as a DVD of all their promo videos.
