Letterman show on Sept. 3.


The press hype on the album:



Produced by Tricky, with Switch on mixing duties, Knowle West Boy is named after the urban ghetto where Tricky was raised. The
album finds
reaching into the post-punk, Two-Tone, reggae, hip hop and pure pop he grew up
adoring and twisting it all into surreal songscapes; creating the most varied and accessible set of his career.  Knowle West Boy, was released last month in the UK to
rave reviews. Q
called the collection vivacious“, the
NME  proclaims that  
 and Uncut states it’s “his best
album in at least a decade.”
