Massive Attack’s 3D And Tricky Recording In Paris

Written by Kiel Egging on June 16, 2012

It seems like two of the UK’s most prominent and well-loved trip-hop acts are joining forces again.

Social media exploded overnight when Massive Attack‘s Robert Del Naja (aka 3D) posted the following picture of himself and well-known producer Tricky…who both appear to be hanging out and working on some beats in Paris right now.

The caption accompanying the picture read: “A picture from paris-where triX & I recorded some new material..robert” – and according to Antiquiet, it has since drawn hundreds of comments and tens of thousands of ‘likes’.

Tricky first collaborated with Massive Attack on their 1991 debut Blue Lines and their follow-up record Protection.

However, when Tricky’s solo career started taking off in 1994, he decided not to work with the band any more due to creative differences.

Back in 2009, in an interview with the BBC, Massive Attack’s Grant ‘Daddy-G’ Marshall said the duo had met up with Tricky in Paris and there was “talk of him maybe coming on the next album”. Sounds like those talks may have come to fruition…
