TRICKY SHARES MUSIC VIDEO FOR ‘NEW STOLE’ (FEAT. FRANCESCA BELMONTE) AHEAD OF TONIGHT’S SOLD OUT LONDON SHOW
Label: False Idols / !K7
“’New Stole’ is particularly moreish” – The Guardian
The video was produced and directed by Indexthumb and features Belmonte, laden with molten wax effects and dark motifs relating directly to the lyrical inspiration of the song – and indeed more tangentially to the imagery of Tricky’s musical career to date.
Director Indexthumb adds: “The animation evokes the idea of someone who will only ever let you get so close, shapeshifting playfully, before melting away before your eyes.”
Tonight’s sold out show is Tricky’s first in London for four years, and a triumphant return in celebration of the recent success of his 13th album, ‘ununiform’ – released to widespread acclaim in September on his own label False Idols (via !K7).
The record, conceived in Moscow and completed in Tricky’s new home of Berlin, is a delicate, storming, intricate album which sees Tricky take perhaps his most radical step yet – a journey into happiness and contentment, and an attempt to answer the question, “what does Tricky sound like?”.
