Ultimate Guitar

Tricky returns on September 8 with new album "Adrian Thaws" - the musician's real name, NME reports.

The follow-up to 2013's "False Idols," the self-produced album is the second on Tricky's own record label, also called False Idols. Self-produced at Tricky's London home studio, guests include Nneka, Mykki Blanco, Oh Land, Bella Gotti, Blue Daisy and Tirzah.

First single "Nicotine Love," which can be heard below, features Irish singer Francesca Belmonte, who previously sang on "False Idols" after auditioning for Tricky.

Explaining the album's title, Tricky said: "Calling it 'Adrian Thaws' is saying 'You don't really know me.' So many times, people have tried to put a finger on me and every album I go to a different place."

Tricky starts a European tour in Austria on July 11. His only scheduled UK show is on August 23 at Galtres Parklands Festival in Yorkshire, which he headlines with Levellers and the Human League.

    Trip-Hop legend from the 90s. Did lots of work with Massive Attack. Not really guitar music but still worth a mention.

    Don't ask... it's tricky...
    C'mon guys...broaden your horizon! Not all of his stuff is good, but his work with Massive Attack and his solo album "Maxinquaye" are brilliant. On a side note, he is also the guy in Tool's "Parabol/Parabola" video.
    Wow, I haven't heard anything from this guy since the Queen of the Damned soundtrack, Which is sitll one of my favorite albums.
