Tricky announces new album, video & 2010 tour dates

Mixed Race

Trip hop hooray. Tricky is on a roll lately…

Tricky has just announced plans for a nationwide tour. Kicking off on December 9th in New York City, Tricky will be touring in support of his ninth studio album, Mixed Race, out October 5th on Domino Records. These winter dates will include stops across the US as well as select cities in Canada.

Earlier this fall, Tricky released the first single from the upcoming album entitled “Murder Weapon.” A reworking of the classic dancehall hit from Jamaican-born Echo Minott, Tricky 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. He then recruited Irish-Italian Franky Riley to sing on the track. Riley has toured with Tricky for the past two years and will also be joining him for the winter dates.

Recorded in Paris, where Tricky has been residing for the past two years, Mixed Race is his most passionate album to date. Musically his production work takes influences from UK, Jamaican, US, North African and French music. He sets out on his music mantra with the album’s lead off track, “Every Day,” and then proceeds through a lyrical journey with temptation, reflection, mischief and misbehavior. The album was produced by the artist himself and features as always an array of talented singers and collaborators. Mixed Race introduces Franky Riley, as well as guest appearances from Jamaican singer Terry Lynn, Primal Scream front man Bobby Gillespie, lutist/vocalist Hakim Hamadouche, London-based vocalist Blackman and Tricky’s brother Marlon Thaws, who is the thirteenth of his fourteen siblings.” [PR]

Not only is Tricky kicking things off in NYC, he’s doing so at two intimate shows in a row: December 9th @ Le Poisson Roige and December 10th at Brooklyn Bowl. Neither is on sale yet. All dates, with the new video for “Murder Weapon”, below…
