Massive Attack album due out in Spring
Tracklisting for the long-awaited new album featuring Sinead O'Connor and news of the follow up
The Hot Press Newsdesk, 13 Nov 2002
Massive Attack have announced details of their Sinéad O'Connor-assisted 100th Window album which is due in late February/early March.
The follow up to 1998's Mezzanine, it features 'Future Proof', 'What Your Soul Sings', 'Everywhere', 'Butterfly Caught', 'A Prayer For England', 'Small Time Shot Away', 'Name Taken', 'Antistar' and the lead single, 'Special Cases', which drops on February 10.
Unfortunately there's no room for Damien Dempsey's 'It's All Good', which Sinéad cajoled them into recording last year at Windmill Lane.
O'Connor's fellow guest vocalists are Damon Albarn and long-time collaborator Horace Andy.
The even-better news for fans is that the normally slothful Wild Bunch are already assembling the follow-up with the assistance of Mos Def and Tom Waits.
"We're not going to hang around," insists Robert '3D' Del Naja. "Another less precious album will follow within 12 months."
Meanwhile, the word from East London is that Ms. O'Connor is also guesting on the new Asian Dub Foundation opus, Enemy Of The Enemy, which is due in January. According to a well-placed source: "They were introduced to each other by their mutual producer, Adrian Sherwood, and got on famously. Moby, Massive Attack and now ADF…Sinéad's turning into a serial collaborator!"
