    The last time Portishead released a studio record it was 1997's self-titled effort—the one with "Only You" and "Over" on it. So what does the trio do with their first gloomy Gus full-length in more than a decade? They name it Third. Um, yeah.

    In more scintillating news, the album is out on April 14 through Island Records. And according to the band's Web site, it includes 11 tracks and more than 49 minutes of music.
