About the Album
Out of Season is an album by Portishead frontwoman Beth Gibbons and former Talk Talk bassist Paul Webb (under the pseudonym Rustin Man). It was released in 2002 in the United Kingdom and in 2003 in the U.S. Out of Season is largely a folk album with jazz leanings, with Gibbons and Webb drawing more directly on the influences of Nina Simone, Billie Holiday, and Nick Drake that Portishead's work in trip-hop only hinted at. Out of Season also features contributions from Gibbon's fellow Portishead bandmate Adrian Utley. The first track of the album, "Mysteries", appears on the original soundtrack of the French movie Les Poupées Russes (The Russian Dolls). Among the notable lyrical references, "Tom the Model" references Nina Simone's "Do what you gotta do", while "Spider Monkey" references Drake's "Fruit Tree". "Drake" also appears to borrow its unusual time signature from Drake's "River Man".
