Tricky returns with his new ‘20,20’ EP via his own label False Idols, featuring vocals from creative collaborator & touring vocalist Marta, and Berlin-based Anika. The latest song lifted from the three track EP features his mesmerising touring vocalist Marta on the bare bones duet Hate this Pain. Listen via Bandcamp below.
Instrumental track M offers a hopeful, forward-facing flipside that bookends Lonely Dancer, a wearied yet beautiful downtempo number featuring Berlin-based Anika.

The full release marks the start of what will be a busy year for Tricky with a run of tour dates already confirmed for April and May throughout Eastern Europe.
2019 saw the producer and artist 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.
