Bristolian trip-hoppers Portishead will be releasing their first album in 10 years later this month and to drag the band into this millennium it'll be previewed on Last.fm first.All 11 tracks from the imaginatively titled, Third, will be debuted exclusively on the music streaming service from 21 April – a week before its released in the shops.Of course they're not the first to do online previews. REM gave fans a taster of Accelerate via iLike on Facebook last month and bands have been sticking the odd new track up on MySpace for years. It is, though, the first of its kind on Last.fm And hopefully not the last.
