    Massive Attack Ritual Spirit EP is out now

    Massive Attack have returned with new music, releasing the Ritual Spirit EP via Kobalt Label Services in North America and Canada this morning. This is the first record of any length released by the band since 2010's Atlas Air EP. The album contains four brand new tracks and was produced by the band's Robert del Naja. See the track list below:

    Ritual Spirit EP track list:

    1. Dead Editors (Massive Attack & Roots Manuva)
    2. Ritual Spirit (Massive Attack & Azekel)
    3. Voodoo In My Blood (Massive Attack & Young Fathers)
    4. Take It There (Massive Attack, Tricky & 3D)

    In promotion of the new album, Massive Attack have premiered the video for "Take It There." Directed by Hiro Murai, it stars Oscar-nominated actor John Hawkes. The stumbling, mesmerizing video takes viewers through a haunting nighttime urban landscape that might make your blood run cold.

    The EP and video follow last week's release of Massive Attack's Fantom app. Fantom is a music player that remixes and reforms songs uniquely by using a variety of environmental variables, including location, movement, time of day, heartbeat and the integral moving image camera.

    Massive Attack is currently touring Europe, with dates across the UK, Italy, Germany, France, and more. The show was designed by Robert del Naja and longtime visual collaborators United Visual Artists, with support from Young Fathers.
