Tricky "Thinking Of"

Tricky, has shared “Thinking Of.” The track is off the pioneering artist/Dj’s forthcoming release Fall To Pieces, out September 4th via False Idols. Along with the new track, Tricky has announced UK and European tour dates for next year.

“Thinking Of” features vocalist Marta Złakowska, the singer he discovered during a Polish tour when he was left without a vocalist on the opening night: the local promoter suggested a girl who worked in a nearby bar, and when she arrived she had already learned the chorus to Tricky’s song “When We Die”. It sounds fortuitous – much like when Tricky encountered his original female vocalist Martina Topley-Bird by chance when she sang outside his front door. But of course he has an intuition too. “Yeah, I can tell when someone is humble and down to earth. Marta doesn’t care about being famous, she just wants to sing.”

Fall To Pieces was recorded in Tricky’s Berlin studio in late 2019. Tricky, has pointed out that the tracks on the record can be deceptive; often short, ending abruptly and moving on to the next without warning. Although instrumentation varies from bursts of tense synths, distorted dial tones, and samples, the song’s lyrics can be dark and dense.
