Massive Attack

Trip-Hop legends Massive Attack have released their new video for "Paradise Circus" (ft. Hope Sandoval) in support of their album, Heligoland, set to release February 9th via EMI's Virgin Records. The Toby Dye directed video features former porn star, Georgina Spelvin, and her candid look on filming the infamous adult film, The Devil in Miss Jones. Original shots of the '73 hit (NSFW) are interlaced with Spelvin's honest take on her physical and emotional state during the production of the film nearly forty years ago.

Heligoland, Massive Attack's highly-anticipated 5th studio album, will feature guest vocals from Damon Albarn, Marina Topely-Bird, Guy Garvey and Tunde Adebimpe. Longtime cohort, Horace Andy, is also set to return alongside Massive Attack founding members Robert Del Naja (3D) and Grand Marshall (Daddy G). The prelude to Heligoland, the Splitting the Atom EP, is available now.

It feels like forever that I've been waiting to hear the new Hope Sandoval-contributed Massive Attack track and it's well worth the wait though I could do without the distracting commentary by Georgina. I hope there's a version without her. I don't really think that The xx sound like Hope Sandoval, but this song definitely sounds a little like The xx. Listen/watch (NSFW) the video with the album art and tracklist, below...


Heligoland Track List:
1. Pray For Rain (featuring Tunde Adebimpe)
2. Babel (featuring Martina Topley-Bird)
3. Splitting The Atom (featuring Robert del Naja/Grant Marshall/Horace Andy)
4. Girl I Love You (featuring Horace Andy)
5. Psyche (featuring Martina Topley-Bird)
6. Flat Of The Blade (featuring Guy Garvey)
7. Paradise Circus (featuring Hope Sandoval)
8. Rush Minute (featuring Robert del Naja)
9. Saturday Come Slow (featuring Damon Albarn)
10. Atlas Air (featuring Robert del Naja)

I love Massive Attack, though I found 100th Window to be pretty disappointing. I have the feeling that the Burial remix project on this new album will outshine the album itself.

I know not everyone will agree with me, but i love that these guys can just take 6-8 years between records, and never release anything that isn't amazing (including 100th Window IMHO). Can't wait for the new one.

I find it kinda creepy and gross to see and hear a woman grandma's age talk explicitly about porn sex.

Massive Attack is best!

There is at least some chance that this album will not suck the way 100th Window did. Also, Grant Marshall, not Grand Marshall. Sure glad he's back.

Dude with 'stache looks like Daniel Day-Lewis.

The "nsfw" trend of hyping your band is brilliant. For now.

The late, great Jerry Fuchs plays drums on this album, also.

That's the point

Dan, no way! 100th window is amazing! Butterfly Caught, Antistar, etc etc are soooo amazing!

I am a little worried about their new album. Hope it's good!

Most of my friends are looking forward to hear the songs in their new album. For sure, this will be another big hit in the music charts. I hope they would have a concert tour near our place so that I could see them perform live.
