Download Massive Attack’s “The Spoils” & “Come Near Me” via iTunes
Six months after Bristol dance music legends and all-around class act Massive Attack unveiled the stellar Ritual Spirit EP, their first official release since 2010’s Heligoland album, the duo have bestowed two stunning new tunes upon us.
Featuring the always enchanting vocals of Mazzy Star’s beloved siren Hope Sandoval, the hauntingly gorgeous “The Spoils” serves as the follow-up to their previous 2011 double-single collaboration “Four Walls” and “Paradise Circus,” the latter of which appeared on Heligoland. The shadowy “Come Near Me,” accompanied by a new cleverly conceived video, showcases London-born vocalist Obaro Ejimiwe, better known as Ghostpoet, whose critically acclaimed 2015 album Shedding Skin was nominated for the prestigious Mercury Prize.
The emergence of both tracks, which the band originally shared via their mobile app Fantom last week, will only fuel further speculation that a proper full-length LP is on the not-too-distant horizon. Fingers crossed.
Stream “The Spoils” and “Come Near Me” below, and watch the video for the latter as well.
