Product Details

Summary

Tricky is back. Back with a new studio album, False Idols, and his own label (also bearing the False Idols name), but also back in a personal sense. "I was lost for ages", he says. "I was trying to prove something to people, trying to do something to please other people and also myself at the same time, which is never going to work. To be honest with you, I've been floating around since Chris Blackwell and Island. My last two albums, I thought they were good, but I realise now they weren't. This album is about me finding myself again."

It opens with a cover of a Van Morrison song, "Somebody's Sins," which sees Tricky and vocalist Francesca Belmonte whispering "Jesus died for somebody's sins, but not mine" over a sparse groaning bass. The lead single "Parenthesis," which features vocals from Peter Silberman of The Antlers, has a more rhythmic grunt, which gives a different dimension to the dark gothic atmosphere that pervades the record. No one does this kind of thing better.

The resemblance to Maxinquaye is undeniable, though the material on False Idols is gentler; more mature. Many of the songs feature artists signed to Tricky's new label, including 24-year Londoner Francesca Belmonte and Fifi Rong. The album also includes collaborations with Nigeria's new global star Nneka, and the afore-mentioned Peter Silberman. In the months before the album's release, False Idols will also release an EP "Matter of Time" showcasing the label's roster on new non-album material produced by Tricky.

Why the name False idols? "Because there's so much bollocks going on at the moment mate," Tricky fires back. "People follow celebrities and read every little thing they do. It's living vicariously through someone else. Get your own life. All this stuff is false idols. In this new album I'll stand behind every track," Tricky says. "I don't care whether people like it. I'm doing what I want to do, which is what I did with my first record. That's what made me who I was in the beginning. If people don't like it, it don't matter to me because I'm back where I was."

Comment: i remember that funk between Tricky and Goldie over Bjork some funny shit. I still say that 1995 album 'Maxinquaye' is Tricky's best and its a Classic. another that was slept on was Tricky vs The GraveDiggaz off of 'The Hell' EP which was also on 'The Crow' soundtrack and I think hes also collaborated with Dj Muggs I think it was in 1999 and the album might have been titled 'Juxtapose'? I also copped a maxi single in 1996 Tricky presents Grassroots which features The Hillfiguzes, pretty dope shit. I like his old stuff better but Tricky will alway be Tricky Trip Hop downtempo shit I use to listen to and still do on occasion.
