Tricky | RUG376 | Released: 30/08/10
Murder Weapon is a reworking of the classic dancehall hit from Jamaican-born Echo Minott, originally released in the early ‘90s. Tricky first fell in love with the track when someone sang it to him as he walked into a shop, and has been obsessed with it ever since. He was determined to hear how it would sound with a female vocalist (in a similar fashion to his reworking of Black Steel with Martina Topley-Bird).
Tricky here enrolls Irish-Italian Franky Riley, who has who has toured as Tricky’s vocalist for two years and makes her recording debut on the forthcoming album.
