Massive Attack

Story by Jack Foley

MASSIVE Attack are to release a Best Of album entitled Collected on March 27, 2006, as an apt reminder of their musical legacy to date.

The album will consist of two CDs, the first featuring tracks chosen by the band, including such gems as Unfinished Sympathy, Safe From Harm, Protection, Teardrop and Angel, and the second a new compilation of rare and reworked material as well as brand new recordings and a DVD of all the videos.

The album will be preceded by a brand new single on March 13, entitled Live With Me, featuring Terry Callier on vocals.

Written by Robert Del Naja, Neil Davidge and Terry Callier, and produced by Del Naja and Davidge, this track sees a return to a more soulful sound for Massive Attack, while retaining the lush production of their more recent albums. The video will be directed by Jonathan Glazer.

Massive Attack are currently in the studio and have completed seven tracks for their fifth album, Weather Underground, with long time collaborator and co-producer Neil Davidge. It is due for release in early 2007.

At present, they are dividing time between Bristol and New York where they have been recording with Dave Sitek and TV On The Radio.

Massive Attack will be playing a series of live dates and festivals throughout the summer and autumn of 2006, the details of which will be announced in due course.
