Listen: Tricky – ‘Lonnie Listen’

By August 19, 2014 Listen, News

Having shared advance tastes of his new album ‘Adrian Thaws’ via the darkly club-leaning ‘Nicotine Love’ and the summery reggae cover ‘Silly Games’, Tricky now releases, Lonnie Listen’. Check it out below:


In addition to regular vocal collaborator Francesca Belmonte, the track features a guest spot from New York emcee Mykki Blanco, whose talent Tricky first encountered during a shared bill in Germany.


Tricky comments: “I saw this dude in a mini-skirt and high heels and he was so aggressive on stage. Some of the crowd were like what the fuck? Imagine a big dude with a woman’s rage — that’s someone who can do some serious damage.”

Adrian Thaws is out September 8 on False Idols in association with !K7 Records. A 2LP Vinyl Gatefold and Deluxe Hard Case CD edition featuring two bonus tracks and an exclusive booklet comprising never before seen photos from Tricky’s youth are available to pre-order now via the !K7 store, hand signed by the artist. Pre-orders are also available on iTunes.
