Tricky returns with his new 20,20 EP on his own label False Idols, featuring vocals from creative collaborator & touring vocalist Marta, and Berlin-based Anika. The latest release from the three track EP features his mesmerising touring vocalist Marta on the bare bones duet “Hate this Pain”.
Instrumental track “ M” offers a hopeful, forward-facing flipside that bookends “ Lonely Dancer”, a wearied yet beautiful downtempo number featuring Berlin-based Anika.
The full release marks the start of what will be a busy year for Tricky with a run of tour dates already confirmed for April and May throughout Eastern Europe.
2019 saw the producer and artist Tricky release his highly acclaimed autobiography ‘Hell Is Round The Corner’ ( Guardian, The Observer, The Quietus, 6Music) and play select shows, including the South Bank’s Queen Elizabeth Hall. The book captured Tricky’s “ indomitable spirit” ( The Observer) – recounting all from a turbulent early family life to the spotlight of late 90s music industry excess. This year, new music can record the next chapter.
