Speaking to Gigwise, Massive Attack's 3D gave an update on the bands new album saying, "To be honest there's a whole album of new material sitting in a studio at the moment which isn't finished and hasn't been played at all yet. There's one track I've done with Tricky… but I've gotta play it live with him really, and that's not ready for this tour yet as it would have just been a bit haphazard to throw it in there for these shows."
