13. MARCH - TOUR CANCELLED
According to Tricky's official Facebook page his upcoming European tour is cancelled. They didn't say what the reason is.

8. DECEMBER 2021 - LONELY GUEST FILM

Tricky directed a short film called "Lonely Guest" (as his latest project / album), which will be shown exclusively tonight at the Trauma Bar and Kino, Berlin. More details on Instagram.


23. OCTOBER 2021 - LONELY GUEST ALBUM OUT, SOME CONCERTS POSTPONED
Tricky's new project album 'Lonely Guest' was released yesterday! You can buy it in different formats, just follow this link. There is a limited white vinyl with postcard, regular black vinyl, CD and download.
It seems Tricky's European tour started as planned in some cities, like 
Budapest on October 19 (see Parenthesis and Here my dear on You Tube). But unfortunately some other shows (Berlin, Cologne, Brussels) are postponed to an unknown date, some shows (Skopje, Thessaloniki, Athens, Sofia, Bucharest, Zagreb) are moved to May 2022. See the tourdates for everything that I could find out.

27. SEPTEMBER 2021 - TRICKY AT THE AIM INDEPENDENT MUSIC AWARDS
Tricky performed two songs at the AIM Independent Music Awards on August 25 and won an award for his label "False Idols"! He performed "Move me" and "Take Me Shopping" (watch it on You Tube by clicking the titles). The first song is new and will be released on the Lonely Guest album (to be released on October 22). The second is from his latest album "Fall to pieces". You can watch the highlights and award winners here (Tricky is up at around 2:10). I've added the event to the concertography here.

26. SEPTEMBER 2021 - TOUR DATES RESCHEDULED, PRE-ORDER ALBUM
Tricky's European autumn tour is yet again mostly rescheduled. I've tried to update the tourdates, but some websites have conflicting information, so I can't garantuee it's all correct. Some sources for example declare October 17 as the start of the tour (for example Ballyhoomedia, Tricky's official agency for Germany). If you want to get a glimpse what to expect for this tour, check out some You Tube videos for his performance at the Cinzella Festival on August 14 here.
You can pre-order the Lonely Guest album here. It will be released on CD, vinyl and limited white vinyl, also for download of course. Tricky already talked about the Lonely Guest album in December in the KEPX Interview (watch it on You Tube).

25. SEPTEMBER 2021 - NEW PROJECT "LONELY GUEST"
Tricky will release a collaborations album (called "Lonely Guest") on October 22 on his label False Idols. Tricky produced the album, and it's probably a similar project as his Nearly God album from 1996.  A first single called "Pre War Tension" was already released in July with vocals from Tricky and Marta (see discography). Another single ("On a Move") with vocals by Kway was released on September 21 (listen to it You Tube, check out the discography). Collaborators on the upcoming album also include Oh Land, Breanna Barbara, Lee Scratch Perry, Paul Smith from Maximo Park, Rina Mushonga, Murkage Dave und JJ. You can find the tracklist on Pitchfork:
01 Lonely Guest [ft. Marta]
02 Pre War Tension [ft. Joe Talbot, Marta and Tricky]
03 Under [ft. Oh Land]
04 Pay My Taxes [ft. Murkage Dave]
05 Atmosphere [ft. Lee “Scratch” Perry, Marta and Tricky]
06 Move Me [ft. Marta]
07 Pipe Dreamz [ft. Rina Mushonga]
08 On a Move [ft. Kway]
09 Christmas Trees [ft. Paul Smith]
10 Big Bang Blues [ft. Breanna Barbara]
The album will be released digitally, on CD and vinyl.


29. JULY 2021 - MISC. RELEASES
I was a little lazy lately updating the news, sorry for that! Tricky released a couple of EPs and collaborations, which you can find in the solo discography:
- Doorway EP
- Fall To Pieces (remixes)
- Fall To Pieces (live).
The Live recording is in fact the KEPX live session from November 2020 (see the video with an interview on You Tube).
Then there were two collaborations (added to the 
collaborations discography):
Trentemller feat. Tricky: No One Quite Like You
- Lonely Guest feat. Joe Talbot, Marta & Tricky: Pre War Tension.
Lonely Guest are a new project on Tricky's label False Idols. The press release says that
Lonely Guest "lays at the centre of a new era and network of artists for False Idols" (quote taken from The Line Of Best Fit). Sounds promising!

17. DECEMBER 2020 - TOURDATES POSTPONED
According to Tricky's official Facebook page his spring tour 2021 is now postponed to autumn, due to Covid-19-restrictions. Not all concerts are in the new list, but it also says more dates will be added in the new year. So let's hope Berlin and Hamburg will be rescheduled, too, because I already have tickets for months! At the moment all tourdates in Germany, France, UK, Russia , Belarus and Ukraine are missing.
I've updated the tourdates with the new dates, take a look here. Already bought tickets will be valid for the new date. Some new dates are also added.


5. DECEMBER 2020 - TRICKY ON KEXP

Tricky did a live show and interview on KEXP, you can watch it on You Tube. It's the first time he played the new songs from "Fall To Pieces" live. The arrangements are different than on the album, musicians were a guitar player, a cellist, a bassist (sometimes playing keyboards) and the singer Marta.
In the interview Tricky said he just did a track with Lee Scratch Perry (and maybe an album later?) and will release a compilation album called "Lonely Guest" with 15 tracks. Some of the artists on the compilation will be known, some unknown.


10. SEPTEMBER 2020 - TRICKY ON BBC 6

Tricky was part of BBC 6's Desert Island Disco on September 4. He talks about the new album and plays music that inspired him. You can still listen to the radio show here (starting at 1:35:10). It is available for one month and here is the tracklist for the tracks he played (I've also added it to the radio page):
Billie Holiday: Strange Fruit

Nancy Wilson: (You Don't Know) How Glad I Am
Madonna: Don't Tell Me
Prince: If I Was Your Girlfriend
Busy Signal: Stay So
X-Ray Spex: I Am A Poseur
BBC 6 seems to love Tricky, the album was also "album of the day" yesterday.

    LONELY GUEST: LONELY GUEST [22. OCTOBER 2021]
Tricky will release a collaborations album (called "Lonely Guest") on October 22 on his label False Idols. Tricky produced the album, and it's probably a similar project as his Nearly God album from 1996.  You can find the tracklist on Pitchfork and pre-order the album here (formats include CD, vinyl, limited white vinyl):
01 Lonely Guest [ft. Marta]
02 Pre War Tension [ft. Joe Talbot, Marta and Tricky]

Two singles were released in July and September 2021 (see discography).


unreleased projects that the world is still waiting for:

TRICKY: PHOTO BOOK
Tricky announced in this Instagram post from 2016 that he will release a book with pictures and words soon: "Book soon words and pics photos by me and mr jaffe the legend who moved to Jamaica to work with bob Marley and took his most iconic pics jaffe followed me around for two years capturing family and friends WORDS WITH PHOTOS". In 2019 he released his autobiography ('Hell is round the corner'), so maybe this book project morphed into the autobiography?

TRICKY: SKILLED MECHANICS, SECOND ALBUM
Tricky mentioned in a radio interview with Flux FM from January 2016 (listen to it here) that he wants to release a follow up album to Skilled Mechanics with Luke Harris and various guests. It was later announced for 2017, but didn't happen yet.

TRICKY & HUMAN SKILLS OF SLOW SAGA: ALBUM???
Tricky mentioned in an interview with Red Bull in 2015 that he recorded songs with two Russian rappers (Human Skills Of Slow Saga). In an interview with Flux FM (listen to it here) he says he definitely wants to finish this project in 2016.

TRICKY: BREEDERS COVER ALBUM
In this interview Tricky mentions that he wants to release a cover album with songs by The Breeders and Kim Deal. Also the biography on the official website mentions a cover album (last checked in September 2014): "There are more projects on the way including a covers record (his first since Nearly God) and Francesca Belmonte’s debut album." He already played one song live at a lot of shows: "Do you love me now".

TERRY LYNN: THE REASON (?)
As you can read here, Terry Lynn was supposed to release an album in 2011. The article said: "The album will also feature tracks produced by Tricky", but the album is not released yet. Here you can read that one track was used in a TV series called "Nikita", the name of the song is "In this time", you can see the short scene of the TV series on Vimeo.

COVER ALBUM
Tricky said 2008 in a video interview that he wants to release a double album, for which he already has material: one album with cover songs and the other with new songs. Since the album "Mixed Race" is just a "normal" album, this is probably not happening.

TRICKY - NEARLY GODDESS
As you can read in an interview on Exclaim Tricky has finished an album called 'Nearly Goddess' in 2003 (referring to his 1996 album 'Nearly God') and features 14 female singers: Kelis, PJ Harvey, Miss Medusa, to name a few... Tricky said on burntblue.com (not online anymore): "It’s more electronica and I’m using samples. I did the album in like three days. It worried me but then I listened back and I thought, ‘nah, you can’t recognize any of these samples, it’s alright!" It should be out in 2003, but never has up to now.
Probably it is the same album that was mentioned earlier on Princess Superstar's official site (the article is not online anymore) and on I like music: "Princess also just dropped some vocals on Tricky's new benefit record to fight breast cancer (also featuring Ms. Kittin and Medusa) which will be out sometime in 2003."

RADAGAN & TRICKA - BACKATIV
This is another album that Tricky recorded in 2003, with Rodigan (Radagon? Rodagan?) from Jamaica. It is "the album I would have done if I hadn’t been in Massive Attack", Tricky told Burn It Blue. The name can be explained easily: "Jamaican kids, they don’t call me Tricky, they call me Tricka. It’s an album with me and this Jamaican kid (Rodigan), so it’s kind of like reggae, two tone and hip hop.” Two songs with Rodigan (although he is written Radagon on the Vulnerable cover) will be released as bonus tracks on 'Vulnerable' ("Receive Us" on the DVD and "Snap Them" on the enhanced CD). One track of the two will be released on the 'Back To Mine' compilation on September 15 (see above).

TRICKY - UNRELEASED MATERIAL
Tricky's autobiography 'All I hear is words' was announced to be released with a CD of unreleased tracks. But it seems it won't be published. Check out the 'All I hear is words' page for more details.

TRICKY - LIVE ALBUM
Tricky said in a chat at the Sonicnet.com (1999) that he will release a live album, maybe even with some video material. According to a post from Tricky's PR rep on the Apocalypse message board (which is not online anymore) the live album should be released in summer 2001, but it never happened so far.

THE (INTERNATIONAL) NOISE CONSPIRACY - SMASH IT UP (TRICKY REMIX)
Tricky did a remix of this song, but it is not released yet. It should be on a 12", but it is not known when or where this will be released.

HAWKMAN - ???
Tricky will produce Hakwman's debut album. Tricky told a fan at a concert that it will be released in January 2001, but it hasn't happened yet...  

SOUTH WEST BATTALION - ???
According to Billboard Tricky will work with his younger brothers Aaron and Marlon on this project. Marlon also was on tour with Tricky in summer 2001 and did a remix of 'Evolution Revolution Love' (which can be found as a bonus track on Blowback or on the promo 12").

TRICKY - 'STREET DOG AND SCRAPPY LOVE'
According to an interview on German TV in August 1999 (listen to it here) Tricky has recorded an album with the title 'Street Dog and Scrappy Love'. An article in the British magazine Hip Hop Connection (HHC) confirms this and says further that it was recorded with Mad Dog, the British rapper who also contributed vocals to Juxtapose. In an interview with a dutch magazine Tricky said that it is very much just improvization by the two, and it won't be released in the near future, though, since they both focus on their own projects.

TRICKY & DJ MUGGS: STONEPONY PROJECT
According to a small article in the July 1999 issue of the German Visions magazine Tricky and DJ Muggs wanted to release an album under the name "Stonepony" in autumn 99. (Read a detailed interview with both of them in the April Raygun article!) But according to Allstar News he album was cancelled and won't be released: > ...after a meeting with Lyor Cohen, Co-President, Island/Def Jam Music Group, Tricky decided that the sonic sum of his work with Muggs wasn't as hip-hop as he wanted it to be ... <

DRUNKENSTEIN: JUNGLE SONGS
Tricky said that he recorded an album with his Drunkenstein project: UK rappers (Tricky, Rodney and MC Mello) and US counterparts (Rock, Storm and Papa D) with original Massive member DJ Milo. He played a demo to a journalist in November 1996 (NME), but it was never released. In a TV documentary rom 1996 called "Sounds of the West" you can see Rock and Milo talk about it and hear a track in the background ("God's Bass", released as a bootleg 12", see promo discography), starting at about at about 14 minutes.

TRICKY & FINLEY QUAYE & IGGY POP: PLEASE SHARE MY DAPPY UMBRELLA 
As MTV reported in 1997 Tricky recorded a song with Finley Quaye and Iggy Pop called "Please share my dappy umbrella". Finley Quaye said: ""Iggy just came down because he was a friend of Tricky's. Tricky and myself were just having a jam, really, at the studio. So we got the three of us set up on three different microphones and a couple of hip hop djs twisting their art on the desk. And we got a good evening."
Maybe this was made up, the title sounds a littly sappy and Tricky is not really friends with Finley Quaye, who claimed to be his uncle once, which led to the bootleg Can't Freestyle.

AMBER SUNSHOWER: RHYTHM CHILD (TRICKY REMIX)
Tricky remixed this song (read about in Blah Magazine), but it is not released anywhere. Tricky played the song on a radio show in 1999 once.

It comes with a bonus 7" of 20,20, and an art print, but it is sold out everywhere, like here or here, for example. The tracks on the 7" are: a1. Hate This Pain, a2. Lonely Dancer, b1. M.

13. APRIL 2020 - NEW EP, TOUR (CANCELLED?), STEVE MCQUEEN
Tricky released a new EP called '20,20' on March 6. Check out the solo discography for details, and I've added the lyrics here. Also a few eastern European tourdates were announced for April and May. I'm not sure if these are cancelled due to the Corona-virus or not.
There is a Steve McQueen exhibition at London's Tate Modern gallery. In 2001 he did the short film "Girls" about Tricky recording this song (see details at the movies section, the Blowback minisite or the interview transcript). But the gallery is closed at the moment due to Corona. The exhibition was to last until May 11, maybe it will last longer now? Who knows... There is a detailed interview with Steve McQueen in Dazed Digital from February, where he also talks about his films. The following part if about Tricky and shooting the film:
Being in such close proximity with Tricky, with his creative intensity building as the minutes go on, McQueen says he gained a real understanding of Tricky’s “focus, and his intensity.”
“He needs to get out of control to gain kind of control,” says McQueen. “To gain control one has to lose control.”

07. DECEMBER 2019 - NEW VIDEO
Tricky released a new video for the song "Makes me wonder" from the Test of Time compilation. You can watch it on You Tube. Check out the videography for details.

28. OCTOBER 2019 - SAMPLER, BOOK, EVENTS
Sorry for the long gap, but I was extremely busy... Here's what happened in the Tricky universe in between:
- On August 30 Tricky's label sampler 'Test of time' was released, you can
buy it at different places, go here to select. It also features a new song by Tricky and Marta, his latest tour singer: 'Makes me wonder' (listen to it on You Tube).  There's also a remix by Tricky on i and two songs produced by him. Check out all the details in the solo discography.
- Tricky talked in an interview with The Guardian about the loss of his daughter Mazy, read it here. He wants to release some of her music on his next album, two songs are ready. Getting over her death has been very hard on him, therapy helps him. But still the whole world has changed, even music doesn't sound the same to him.
- There is a letter from David Bowie to Tricky in the November issue of Mojo, you can buy the print version here.
- On October 31 Tricky's autobiography 'Hell is round the corner' will be released. You can preorder it at Amazon or buy at other places (hardcover or Kindle). He directed a trailer that you can watch on You Tube.

21. AUGUST 2019 - AUTOBIOGRAPHY DETAILS & REMIX 
Tricky revealed the title of his autobiography that will be released on October 31: Hell is round the corner. You can preorder it at Amazon UK or Amazon Germany, it will be released as a hardcover book and Kindle. As you can read here, it is "featuring contributions from family members, music industry professions and noted music figures such as Terry Hall and Shaun Ryder."
And foreshadowing the upcoming compilation "Test of time" he released his remix of "Colossus" by Idles as a digital single. This is actually the first remix Tricky did in 4 years (that I know of)! More details in the remix discography.

11. AUGUST 2019 - AUTOBIOGRAPHY IN OCTOBER 
Tricky announced on Facebook that he will release an autobiography in October. Already in March an article said the book was aquired by Blink /Bonnier Books UK, read about it here: the book is written by Tricky and Andrew Perry, the idea was born in an interview in 2017. The book will be released as a hardback for 20 and has no title yet.
There has been talk about a book for a long time! At first it should be called "All I hear is words" (read details about it here), but it never happened. Last year it should be a collection of photos, but it hasn't been released so far. Let's see if it happens this time and what exactly it will be.

10. AUGUST 2019 - TRICKY'S DAUGHTER DIED, SAMPLER TO COME
It has been quiet for a while now, because on May 8 Tricky and Martina's daughter Mazy Mina died at the age of 24. According to her bandmates from Collective 404 she commited suicide: "As some of you may know she had long struggled with her mental health, and recently tragically took her own life. Mina was a beautiful soul; brave, caring, and immensely strong. Through her music she is eternal and will never be forgotten.” (NME). Which is even more devastating, because also Tricky's mother commited suicide when he was young. Tricky posted a video on You Tube as a tribute to her on May 28. It features her song "When you go", released on his album "Adrian Thaws" in 2014. He wrote:
"I thought I knew what loss was, but now my daughter is gone I realise I had no idea what it was after all. It feels like I'm in a world that doesn't exist, knowing nothing will ever be the same again. No words or text can really explain - my soul feels empty. Mazy Mina, my daughter, had two names - some people called her Mazy, some people called her Mina. She had an amazing talent for singing and songwriting; songs which will be finished and heard. Your words and songs will live on, I will make sure they do. I haven't had the strength to even look at a picture of you until now - people will hear your voice and songs. All my heart - what's left of it. Love you Mazy Mina, Dad"
Tricky then deleted his Instagram account, but it is back for about a week now (saying "account run by management", while before it was run by himself and he commented a lot). He announced on Facebook that he will release a sampler on his label False Idols called "Test of Time" on August 30. You can see the tracklist and listen to two tracks produced by Tricky on Bandcamp or other places. It will also contain a new track by Tricky called 'Makes me wonder' with his tour singer Marta Zlakowska and a remix by him. The vinyl version is limited to 300 copies, you can preorder it here and it comes with the digital version of the album.

26. FEBRUARY 2019 - STUDIO TIME & FESTIVAL IN FRANCE
It seems Tricky is recording with a cello in the studio at the moment, as he hinted at in this Instagram post (and another one a while ago). On April 5 he will play at the Chorus Festival in Boulogne near Paris. He's not listed on the official website, but is mentioned on their Facebook page.
[Thanks to Jonathan for this info!]

15. DECEMBER 2018 - NEW YEARS EVE AT BERGHAIN
Tricky will appear on new year's eve at Berlin's famous club Berghain, probably as a DJ? He is listed on the official website in the 'electro acoustic salon' (Halle am Berghain). The party starts at 1 am on Tuesday, he is almost the last one in the long running order: Lotus Eater [Lucy & Rrose] LIVE | Barker | Etapp Kyle | Felix K | Mark Ernestus | mxwhd | Pom Pom | Rabih Beaini | Rachel Lyn |Tricky | Vladimir Ivkovic. Tricky once played a concert there, you can read my review here.
 
24. OCTOBER 2018 - GHOSTFACE KILLAH
Tricky is featured on the new Ghostface Killah album "The lost tapes" on the bonus track:
13. Saigon Velour Remix feat. Snoog Doog, E40 and Tricky. You can listen to the track on You Tube or buy several formats at Bandcamp or other places. For details of the very confusing long list of different formats, most of them strictly limited, go to the collaborations discography.


31. MARCH 2018 - KUTX RADIO SESSION
Tricky appeared live on KUTX Radio Austin a while ago, watch the session here. The female singer is Breanna Barbara, who was on tour with Tricky in the US in 2017 and did a reworking of "When we die" (you can download it for free at Bandcamp, see details at the discography).
They played three songs (When We Die, New Stole, Armor) and did an interview.

30. MARCH 2018 - VIDEOS AND U.S. TOUR
Tricky will play some gigs in the US and Canada in May, also two concerts in Argentina and one festival in Moscow this summer (Massive Attack are playing the same day at this festival, I guess there will be a little reunion on stage!) and one festival in Rouen (which seems to be ridiculously cheap, so if you can: go there!). Check out the tourdates for all the details.  
He also released a video for the "Stripped Down Tricky Mix" of 'The only way' a while ago. You can watch it on You Tube. The song is now finally released officially, before it was only available on Soundcloud and as a bonus version on the album (see discography for details). I forgot to mention another video, which was released in December: 'New Stole', check it out here. I've added both videos to the videography.
