After nearly three years Foreign Family Collective associate Chet Porter is making his long-awaited return to music with his new single ‘The Longest Day Ever’.
Over the past two years, Chet has amassed over 25 million streams and has been vital tour support for massive names such as ODESZA, Alison Wonderland, Jai Wolf, Louis The Child, San Holo and Whethan. During this time, Chet faced significant mental health issues which stopped him from completing the San Holo tour and prevented him from finishing music. After a necessary step back from touring and producing, Chet is returning to the scene refreshed and inspired.
The track features Chet’s own vocals and sounds like a cross between Animal Collective, M83 and Porter Robinson. The hiatus has proven to be a great decision as Chet is now back with a stellar record that is sure to rock the music scene. His vocals add a smooth element to the production, together with the vibrant electronic sounds – this is a really strong release that should see some tremendous support.
“‘The Longest Day Ever’ feels like a good launching point for the new music. I made it in a day just randomly in my bedroom when I was supposed to be finishing other music, and I knew right away it was gonna be the first song I put out. The whole thing is actually just a demo, really. The vocals are the rough idea I recorded into my phone, I hadn’t even written anything down yet. I tried re-tracking them for real but they just didn’t have the same vibe. The song is about not caring about anything, so sonically it’s actually kind of suiting. It’s not a “fun care-free” type of not caring, though. it’s more melancholy” Chet Porter says.
