Tricky to Release Ninth Album in September

Tricky will release his ninth studio album, Mixed Race, via Domino on September 27. The follow-up to the Bristol-hailing artist’s 2008 disc, Knowle West Boy, will be preceded by the single, Murder Weapon, on August 30. Recorded in Paris, where the singer currently resides, the album will feature guest appearances from vocalist Franky Riley, Bobby Gillespie (Primal Scream), Terry Lynn, Hakim Hamadouche, Blackman and Tricky’s brother, Marlon Thaws.




Of the release, Tricky notes...

“Every album is a learning experience and this is concentrated music, there’s no dilution. I’m comfortable in my own skin now, comfortable with being in the light. I’m not just a kid from Knowle West trying to build a future, I have some experience, I can experiment, I can be honest, and honestly, musically, I can’t be touched. I used to hide in the shadows when I played live, now I perform. I used to hate doing interviews, now I feel honoured that people would be interested in what I have to say. I’ve spent my life going between cultures; Mixed Race is about that, and in a very direct way.”
