Massive Attack working on new album

02 July 2014, 10:44 | Written by Luke Morgan Britton

Massive Attack have revealed details about their upcoming follow-up to 2010’s Heligoland.

“There’s a whole album of new material sitting in a studio at the moment which isn’t finished and hasn’t been played at all yet,” Rob Del Naja - aka 3D - told Gigwise at Glastonbury Festival.

“There’s one track I’ve done with Tricky… At the moment I’m thinking that on this record we’ve been concentrating on songs and the inspirations for them. Working with Adam last year saw us hear a lot of old pop songs which I guess made us look at things in a different way”

“We’ve always worked under a DJ-based ideology incorporating the beats and rhythms first, so what we’ve been doing is just straight up songs and melodies, now whether that will fit into the history of the band, I don’t know, but it’s a different approach so it’s interesting to see how successful that will be.”

Massive Attack headlined the Other Stage on Sunday night at the Worthy Farm fest.
