The fantastic new Portal Options EP I blogged about here earlier is now available.

It is available to order now from the Make Mine Music MySpace page HERE and website HERE.

The four-track EP features vocal contributions from Glen Johnson of Piano Magic/Future Conditional, Angele David-Guillou of Klima/Piano Magic, Ben Holton of Epic45/My Autumn Empire, and Lorraine Lelis, ex-Mahogany. All of the tracks were co-written with the collaborators. Glen Johnson also provides a "Future Conditional" remix of the title track.

The CD is priced at £5.00 including postage to anywhere in the world. It will also be available in shops from 30th March.

Here's what Norman's Records have said about it.

"It would appear that Portal have now returned from a brief hiatus to present us with 'Options'. This seems to be a concerted effort to evolve beyond previous efforts and sees Portal collaborate with Piano Magic's Glen Johnson, Epic 45's Ben Holton and Lorraine Lelis of Mahogany. The result is pure New Order, a surprisingly commercial move but it works beautifully, invoking those classic electro 12" dance mixes that would rock the Hacienda to the break of dawn throughout the late 80s. Each of the vocal contributions really helps enhance Scott Sinfield's subtle electronic synth-pokery and takes Portal's recording output to new heights both in terms of personal musical development and commercial appeal. The Glen Johnson remix is also pretty sweet. Definitely worth look." (Norman Records, 20.03.09)
