Tricky’s new album, Mixed Race, is out on Domino October 5th, till then we get a sneak peak via the release of the single and video of “Murder Weapon”. Growing up Tricky was a favourite of mine, not just for his music, but as a style icon of that era and for his amazing videos, this video is no exception. We’re looking forward to seeing/hearing more October 5th.
“”Murder Weapon” is a reworking of the classic dancehall hit from Jamaican-born Echo Minott, originally released in the early ’90s. Tricky fell in love with the track and was determined to hear how it would sound with a female vocalist (in a similar fashion to his reworking of “Black Steel” with Martina Topley-Bird).
Tricky here enrolls Irish-Italian Franky Riley, who has toured as Tricky’s vocalist for two years and makes her recording debut on his new album “Mixed Race”.”
