Tricky’s back. After sharing The Only Way last month, he’s announced a new LP and given us another track from it, this in collaboration with the familiar figure of Martina Topley-Bird.
ununiform will be his 13th full-length LP and of it, he says “I’ve got nothing to prove now, and I’m comfortable with referencing myself.” So expect the LP to re-examine his back catalogue and while there are a number of collaborators on the album, it’s the one with Topley-Bird that catches the eye most. They first worked together on Maxinquaye which came out back in 1995 (still sounds absolutely incredible, by the way), but haven’t worked together in nearly 15 years. Examining the beauty of life through the lens of death, When We Die is Tricky at something near his best.
Pre-orders are going in here.
