Happy new music Monday! Today we get a first listen to the new Tricky album, False Idols, ahead of its release next week. It's supposed to be a return to creative roots for Tricky, who said that he's stopped trying to be all things to all people and instead focusing on some of the original ideas around his music. So how'd it go? Check it out for yourself at NPR Music for a full album stream.
They're mixed in their response, but NPR Music eventually caves on the idea that it's both OG Tricky and completely fresh and relevant to today's music standards, saying "You'll be surprised how contemporary Tricky's signature mix of menace and seduction sounds after his more than 20 years in (and out of) the spotlight. With help from young British vocalists Francesca Belmonte and Fifi Rong, Tricky deftly balances sexy sighs and dub-influenced basslines. Each time through the album, different highlights surface."
