Massive Attack has launched a brand new app, Fantom, which you can download for free via the iTunes App Store. The app also includes four new songs, "Dead Editors," "Voodoo In My Blood," "Take It There," and "Ritual Spirit." However, the songs can only be heard in snippets, but users can remix them.
According to the creators, the App was "developed by a team including Massive Attack's Robert del Naja, [and] 'Fantom' is a sensory music player that remixes and reforms songs uniquely using a variety of environmental variables including location, movement, time of day, heartbeat and the integral moving image camera.
In addition to a constantly evolving listening experience, 'Fantom' also allows users to create and record unique audio-visual clips which can be shared and saved and easily shared via socials, SMS and peer-to-peer channels."
Further, the app states, "For those of you with Apple Watch, tap the Fantom watch app Heart Rate mode and your heartbeat will vary the harmonic and rhythmic cadences of the songs. Moving your wrist will also create different effects on tracks. If you are stationary then the mix will also reflect this."
Massive Attack is currently on tour in Europe with upcoming concerts in the UK, Italy, Germany, France, and more. The band has not released an album since 2010's Heligoland, but hopefully this signals that more new music will be coming from the band in the near future.
