Portishead’s Beth Gibbons has announced her debut solo album of original material, Lives Outgrown. It’s out on May 17 via Domino. Today she’s shared a new song, “Floating on a Moment,” which you can hear below. The album features production from James Ford (Arctic Monkeys, Depeche Mode, The Last Dinner Party) and Beth Gibbons with additional production by Lee Harris (Talk Talk).

Gibbons said in a statement about the album, “I realized what life was like with no hope. And that was a sadness I’d never felt. Before, I had the ability to change my future, but when you’re up against your body, you can’t make it do something it doesn’t want to do.”

Gibbons has also lined up tour dates in Europe. Check those out below.

In 2002, Gibbons released Out of Season, a collaborative album with Rustin Man, a.k.a. Paul Webb of Talk Talk.
