Earlier this weekend we reported on the existence of the Porter Robinson & Madeon mini album which popped up on a Japanese retailer and was subsequently uncovered by Redditors. At the time, neither Porter nor Madeon had officially commented on the album, but earlier today Porter Robinson took to Twitter to confirm a few things.
With Porter Robinson and Madeon set to unveil their Shelter Live Tour in Tokyo, and having announced a performance several days ago, the mini album was intended on being the Japan-exclusive physical product for the market. He also revealed that the album’s much-anticipated piano version was not the encore edition as many people assumed, but an extended version of the piano and string rendition found in the Shelter animation, sans dialogue.
@BarryByanBelter it’s an extended version of the piano / strings (with no dialogue!) version that i made for shelter the animation
