Tricky and Martina Topley-Bird shared the very sad news that their daughter, Mazy Mina Topley-Bird, died earlier in May at age 24, Pitchfork reports. Both Tricky and Martina penned tributes, and Tricky has also shared “When You Go” which Mazy Mina recorded in 2012, writing, “She had an amazing talent for singing and songwriting; songs which will be finished and heard. Your words and songs will live on, I will make sure they do.” You can listen to that and read both tributes below.

Rest in peace, Mazy Mina.

Martina Topley-Bird:

Sweet baby, life won’t be the same without you.

Tricky:

I thought I knew what loss was, but now my daughter is gone I realise I had no idea what it was after all. It feels like I’m in a world that doesn’t exist, knowing nothing will ever be the same again. No words or text can really explain – my soul feels empty.

Mazy Mina, my daughter, had two names – some people called her Mazy, some people called her Mina. She had an amazing talent for singing and songwriting; songs which will be finished and heard.

Your words and songs will live on, I will make sure they do. I haven’t had the strength to even look at a picture of you until now – people will hear your voice and songs.

All my heart – what’s left of it.
Love you Mazy Mina, Dad
