Tricky announces new album
Domino is pleased to announce the arrival of the new album from Tricky, Mixed Race, on 27th September 2010. This is his ninth studio album and his second released through Domino after 2008’s Knowle West Boy. 'Murder Weapon' will be released as the first single on 30th August. Collaborators include Irish-Italian Franky Riley who has toured as Tricky’s vocalist for two years and makes her recording debut here, plus Terry Lynn, Bobby Gillespie, Hakim Hamadouche, Blackman and Tricky’s brother, Marlon Thaws who’s the thirteenth of fourteen siblings.
Tricky says “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.”
