Massive Attack to Drop Fifth Album in February

Trip-hop veterans Massive Attack are set to follow up their recent Splitting the Atom EP with the fifth full-length album of their near two-decade career, entitled Heligoland. Coming February 8 from Virgin, the UK production duo's new record features high-profile vocal work from Blur frontman Damon Albarn, Hope Sandoval of Mazzy Star, Martina Topley-Bird, Guy Garvey, and TV on the Radio's Tunde Adebimpe. Current Attack members Robert Del Naja and Grant Marshall also collaborated with DFA's Tim Goldsworthy and Portishead's Adrian Utley on a few songs throughout Heligoland. The forthcoming album's release will also be followed by tour dates, to be announced next year, from the seasoned production team both in the UK and the US.
