MASSIVE ATTACK RELEASE RITUAL SPIRIT EP
PREMIERE TAKE IT THERE VIDEO28 JANUARY 2016 (Toronto, ON) - Massive Attack return with the Ritual Spirit EP, released today via Virgin/EMI/Universal Music Canada, the country's leading music company. The EP features the return of Tricky (on Take It There) in addition to collaborations with Young Fathers (Voodoo In My Blood), Roots Manuva (Dead Editors) and newcomer Azekel (Ritual Spirit). Ritual Spirit was written and produced by Massive Attack’s Robert del Naja and long-term studio collaborator Euan Dickinson. A second Massive Attack EP, written and co-produced by Daddy G, will be released in the spring, with an album to follow later in the year. To mark the EP release, Massive Attack have today premiered a brand new video for Take It There, directed by Hiro Murai and starring Oscar-nominated actor John Hawkes. The release of the Ritual Spirit EP follows the launch of Massive Attack’s ‘Fantom’ app last week. Developed by a team including the band’s Robert del Naja, ‘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.

The new live show is designed by Robert del Naja and long time visual collaborators United Visual Artists, with support coming from Young Fathers.
