An album that has been high up on my "ooh yeah, I can't wait to hear this" chart is Massive Attack's forthcoming release, Heligoland. Sure, there have been the inevitable leaks, and hell, we're guilty as the next kid for peaking a sneak with our ears, but I'm reserving all judgments and critiques until the band's 5th studio album is officially released on February 8.
With the impending release date nearing, we've got a neat treat for all.
Since 1990 (wow, that's 20 years and yeah it seems weird to say that...whew!), Jamaican roots-reggae singer, Horace Andy, has been collaborating with Massive Attack. So it's no surprise that that British trip-hop duo enlisted the unique vocals of their longtime friend for new album, Heligoland.
Andy provides his Rastafarian tones on the cut, Girl I Love You, an echoey and darkly tuned ride of a record.
Today, I'm pleased as punch to give you the first of a few official remixes I'll be rolling out over the course of the next few weeks. One of my Beaston-faves of late last year, She Is Danger, took the song and added a dynamic new beat and extra dubby goodness.
And it's all yours, for free, below.
