Following the release last month of the ‘Splitting the Atom’ EP, the first new Massive Attack music in three years, the trip-hop duo have confirmed that their new album, ‘Heligoland’, will be released on February 8 next year (February 9 in the US).
The album features a stellar line-up of guest vocals from the likes of Damon Albarn, Hope Sandoval, Martina Topley-Bird, Guy Garvey and Tunde Adebimpe. Damon also plays bass on ‘Flat Of The Blade’ and keyboards on ‘Splitting The Atom’, while Portishead’s Adrian Utley plays guitar on ‘Saturday Come Slow’.
The artwork for the album, above, is an original image by the band’s own Robert Del Naja.
Only three months to wait!
