This 2020 has been a rather complicated year, with bad things and some good ones. As for music, we were postponed and even canceled concerts and festivals around the world, with some bands and artists performing tracks to make the quarantine more enjoyable. However, some more are taking advantage of these moments to make their triumphant return and that’s the case of Massive Attack.

In 2016, Robert Del Naja and Grant Marshall released the EP Spirit Ritual, a collection of 4 songs where artists like Roots Manuva, Azekel, Young Fathers and Tricky. As if this were not enough, they also launched The Spoils, which included songs alongside Ghostpoet and the vocalist for Mazzy Star, Hope Sandoval.

Since then, Massive Attack was dedicated to giving presentations around the world and between 2018 and 2019 put together a tour to celebrate the 21 years of the Mezzanine, one of the most important records of his entire career. For a long time we have waited for them to return musically speaking, and 2020 seems like the ideal year for these trip-hop legends to release new music.

It turns out that on his official Instagram account, Robert Del Naja shared a rather peculiar image. In her we see the photograph of a person’s face, which seems to be taken with a thermal camera. In addition to being interesting, what caught the attention of many is that both on the cover and in the publication emphasize the title Eutopia EP.

Massive Attack only moved us with this image

After this, the same Robert Del Naja shared two other images referring to Eutopia EP. Until now We don’t know when this album will be officially released and not even shared a tracklist with the songs that will be included in this new record material, the only thing that yes we are sure is that they will return at the right time.

We can only wait for Massive Attack to reveal more details about this new EP to finish getting completely excited. But while that day comes, Let’s remember one of the best songs of the Spirit Ritual, “Voodoo In My Blood” with Young Fathers:
