Massive Attack to Release New Music to Benefit War Child Charity

After seven years of remaining relatively off the radar, veteran trip-hop group Massive Attack dropped its fifth full-length studio album, Heligoland, earlier this year. Now back in the swing of things, producers Robert Del Naja and Grant Marshall have their follow-up already scheduled for release this November. The forthcoming Atlas Air EP will feature the title track (also the final song on Heligoland), a remix of the song by DFA alum Tim Goldsworthy, a new Massive Attack jam featuring vocals from Elbow's Guy Garvey, called "Redlight," and a remix of that new song by Warp's Clark. The EP's cover artwork will be a painting by Del Naja, and the digital version of the release will feature a short film for "Atlas Air" by Edouard Salier. Here's the kicker: All proceeds from the new EP will go directly to the War Child charity to benefit the children living in war-torn countries around the world.
