Massive Attack has been staying busy these days. Not only are they about to embark on a world tour, but they stopped by KCRW for a little something on Morning Becomes Eclectic.


Last week I had the opportunity to check this lovely lady perform songs off her upcoming album and her current EP. Lucy Schwartz kicked off a night of music at the Troubadour in West Hollywood, amongst a full house, which included the guidance counselor from Glee.

Such a cute girl! Her music provokes that type of emotion that is perfect for those moments you find on TV & Film. I definitely see big things happening for this girl, rising to the top like some of today's top singer/songwriters.

Here is her latest video for her single "Gravity." It's probably one of my favorite songs from her her, and of course it's already been in such shows like Grey's Anatomy.

Legendary Massive Attack will tour North America for the first time since 2006 in support of their newly released 5th studio album ‘Heligoland.’ The North American trek will start May 7th at Sound Academy in Toronto, ON and wrap May 30th at the Sasquatch Festival in George, WA. They will play 2 shows in NYC, Los Angeles and San Francisco with general on sale beginning March 5th (full schedule below).

Massive Attack’s latest album ‘Heligoland’ was released on Feb 9th on EMI’s Virgin Records and debuted at #46 on the Billboard 200, marking the highest U.S. chart position of the duo’s career. An all star cast join founding members Robert Del Naja (3D) and Grand Marshall (Daddy G) on their first studio album in 7 years which includes Damon Albarn, Mazzy Star’s Hope Sandoval, Martina Topley-Bird, Elbow’s Guy Garvey and TV on the Radio’s Tunde Adebimpe. USA Today praises the collaborator’s contributions on ‘Heligoland’ by saying, “They give the gloomy grooves and chilled beats a heartbeat but also step into Massive Attack’s otherworldly sonics with enticingly haunted performances.” Albarn also plays bass on “Flat Of The Blade” and Keyboards on “Splitting The Atom” while Portishead’s Adrian Utley plays guitar on ‘Saturday Come Slow’. The band also collaborated with DFA’s Tim Goldsworthy on selected tracks. The cover artwork features an original image by Robert Del Naja.

Over the last three years Robert Del Naja has written and produced soundtracks for a number of films and documentaries, including ‘Trouble In The Water’, ’44 Inch Chest’, ‘In Prison My Whole Life’ and ‘Gomorra’, the latter for which he won the David Di Donatello Award for Best Song. Last year Massive Attack won the Outstanding Contribution to British Music Award at the Ivor Novello Awards. In September, Massive Attack headlined this year’s Bestival ahead of their first full UK tour in three years.
