Just as the second anniversary of the release of “ Knowle West Boy ” (Domino, 2008) comes around, and a little less time since we first heard “ Tricky Meets South Rakkas Crew” (Domino, 2009), where the boys of the South Rakkas Crew dedicated themselves to re-imagining those same tracks with an electro-dancehall edge, Domino and PIAS Spain bring us news about the new full-length album from Bristol’s dark figure. Tricky´s ninth album, entitled “Mixed Race”, will bring together ten tracks which have clearly been inspired by the cultural melting pot that has always surrounded Adrian Nicholas Matthews Thaws. Franky Riley, Terry Lynn, Bobby Gillespie, Hakim Hamadouche, Blackman, and one of Tricky’s brothers, Marlon Thaws, are among the invited artists on the album, which was recorded in Paris. Domino (PIAS in Spain) will release it on 27th September in Europe, and a day later in the USA.
The album’s first single, “Murder Weapon”, taking an instrumental cue from “ Peter Gunn Theme”, awaits you after the jump, courtesy of Domino. The single will be available in stores on 30th August.
