Massive Attack Working on New Record

Published: 2008-04-21
Trip hop duo Massive Attack is working on their fifth disc with reggae singer Horace Andy. Andy and the British formation have already three songs recorded, which will hopefully show up on the new record which has a current working title of Weather Underground. The album will be the act's first in almost 5 years, considering their last release was 100th Window, which came out in 2003.

Guests expected to appear with Massive Attack on their new effort are Blur's Damon Albarn, ex-Mazzy Star singer Hope Sandoval, Scottish vocalist Liz Fraser and Tunde Adebimpe from TV on the Radio. There is no exact date scheduled for the disc's release yet and no other details about the album are known. According to Andy, Massive Attack will appear at UK music festival Glastonbury and play some shows in and around Britain this summer.

Massive Attack have been together since 1988 and released their debut, Blue Lines, in 1991. In 2006, a greatest hits compilation entitled Collected came out via Virgin Records, which included songs such as "Teardrop", "Angel", and single, "Live with Me", spanning the group's discography since their beginnings.
