NEWS: Tricky shares ‘New Soul’ Video feat Francesca Belmonte
Tricky presents the video for ‘New Stole’, featuring vocals from Francesca Belmonte.Watch it below:
The track, a newly moulded revision of the song ‘Stole’ from Francesca Belmonte’s False Idols released album.
Francesca Belmonte adds: “This song is about a baptism of fire. It’s about acknowledging your trauma, facing it, embracing it, loving it and letting it go. It’s about coming out the other side having done the work, changed forever, for better or worse. It’s about knowing yourself and moving on.”
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.”
Tricky released his 13th album, ‘ununiform’ – 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?”.
