With a track record of collaborations ranging from Alison Moyet to the Red Hot Chili Peppers to RZA, Tricky always has the ability to pull something unexpected of out the hat.
‘Vulnerable’, his second LP for Anti Records has a provisional release date of May 19th, and was recorded in Autumn 2002 in LA with his touring band.
Sounding a lot less muddled and unfocused than ‘Blowback’, this is about as near to the format of ‘Maxinquaye’ as fans are likely to get with someone as contrary as Tricky. The signature sound of Tricky echoing sweet female vocals is all over the LP. Though unconfirmed at this point, his vocal sparring partner is an Italian vocalist Constanza Francavilla.
The music, instead of the demo feel of the muddy loops and dark atmospheres, is a much clearer and diverse production . ‘Dear god’ features acoustic instruments and live beats, whilst at the other end of the scale ‘How High’ slams with heavy rock guitars. First single is expected to be ‘Anti-Matter’
