Video: Tricky – Is That Your Life feat. Francesca Belmonte

The new single from Tricky‘s acclaimed album ‘False Idols‘ is a dark and emotional reworking of album favourite ‘Is That Your Life’ featuring main album vocal collaborator Francesca Belmonte. The idea to remix the track came about after seeing the first cut of the video he had directed.

"I wanted something moodier to fit the vibe of the video, so we went in with our friend Tony Ra who reworked the track specifically around what we had created visually" says Tricky.

Directed by Tricky & Len Trusty.

Tricky – Valentine (Andy Stott Remix) feat. Francesca Belmonte

Tricky’s Valentine featuring Francesca Belmonte gets the remix treatment from Manchester’s ‘knackered house’ originator Andy Stott.

Tricky says: "Andy Stott remix was done just because he is a talent, no other reason. This is not for a single release and not promotion for any up and coming release. We approached him and asked him to choose a song. False Idols is not a typical label so we do not have to do things in typical label fashion. Andy Stott’s remix is totally pure and refreshing and stands alone."

The track is due for released on Tricky’s own False Idols imprint. The 12” will be available September 16 via Boomkat, September 30 via all all retailers. Pre-order here.
