Tricky, moniker of Adrian Thaws, will release his new EP, 20,20, on March 6th via his own label, False Idols. Today, he presents its lead single, “Lonely Dancer.” “Lonely Dancer” features Berlin-based musician Anika, and is a wearied yet beautiful downtempo number.
The 20, 20 EP also features his mesmerising touring vocalist Marta on the bare bones duet “Hate this Pain,” while instrumental track “M” offers a hopeful, forward-facing flipside to bookend the release.
2019 saw Tricky release his highly acclaimed autobiography Hell Is Round The Corner (Guardian, The Observer, The Quietus, 6Music) and play select shows, including the South Bank’s Queen Elizabeth Hall. The book captured Tricky’s “indomitable spirit” (The Observer), recounting all from a turbulent early family life to the spotlight of late 90s music industry excess. This year, new music can record the next chapter.
