The bestest of best news: new music from trip-hop, downtempo, hip-hop and experimental electronic music master mind Tricky, a.k.a. Adrian Thaws. What's more, Adrian Thaws is not just his actual real name, it's also the chosen name of his new album. The album promises to "roam from hip hop to house, jazz to blues, rock to reggae."
"I suppose this is my club/hip hop album," Tricky said. "I've only heard my music a few times in a club but I grew up in clubs from when I was 14: blues parties, hip hop clubs, a few raves. I'm not known for doing club music but this album has some club tracks on it - well, what I would consider club music."
Tricky's album Adrian Thaws is due out on his own label False Idols on Sept. 8.
"Calling it Adrian Thaws is saying you don't really know me. So many times people have tried to put a finger on me and every album I go to a different place."
