My track of the Week, from Monday’s show, is the new release from Tricky, ‘When We Die’. This will be the closing track on his forthcoming album, due for release in September, and features Martina Topley-Bird on vocals. Topley-Bird collaborated with Tricky on his early albums, but they haven’t worked together for almost twenty years. The good news is that they’ve teamed up on this, and another track (‘The Only Way‘), to be included on the album. ‘When We Die’ is Tricky at his best – slow, hypnotic and addictive.
Recorded in Berlin, where Tricky now lives, the album ‘Ununiform’ is due for release shortly on his own label, False Idols.
