Slow is the brand new single from Tricky, released on October 20th. It is the second single taken from his critically acclaimed first album for Domino, Knowle West Boy, released in July.Tricky is promising to return to the States again soon because tickets are on sale (@ 10AM) for a February 28th show at Irving Plaza. It's the same venue he played when he was here in September.
The only cover on Knowle West Boy, Kylie's Slow is given a drastic make-over, humorously and inappropriately transforming the coy pop hit into a seedy electro-punk track. Asked why he chose to cover this track, Tricky replied 'I covered Kylie's Slow because I love that song. And the video is one of the best fucking videos I've ever seen. It's sexy as fuck.'
Tricky plans on coming out with another album too. You can hear him talk about it in the video below. His only tour dates at the moment are in the UK for NME, and you'll find them down there too...
