20th anniversary reissue of Massive Attack’s double platinum (UK) album featuring the original album re-mastered + an album of previously unreleased dub remixes by the Mad Professor.
Widely hailed as their masterpiece, and voted 15 in Q Magazine’s 100 Greatest British Albums Ever, Mezzanine saw the band move away from the ‘trip-hop’ sound they had helped define to embrace rock and electronica.
All 8 Mad Professor remixes included here are previously unreleased and include his dub mixes of 2 tracks not originally featured on Mezzanine but from the same period – Metal Banshee – a dub version of Superpredators which was a cover of Siouxie and the Banshee’s Metal Postcard – and Wire, a track they recorded for the soundtrack of the film Welcome to Sarajevo.
A 2xCD version will include the Mad Professor remixes and will come as a reproduction of the original Mezzanine digipack. The deluxe vinyl boxset comes packaged in a specially designed heat sensitive box, that will include a book featuring exclusive images by Robert Del Naja and Nick Knight.
The Mezzanine box set and CD will be available to pre-order with both formats shipping on the 19th April 2019.
Starting in January 2019, Massive Attack will tour both Europe and North America, and will play the entirety of the Mezzanine album on each show. The show will re-imagine Mezzanine 21 years on from its release using custom audio reconstructed from the original samples and influences. The Cocteau Twins’ Elizabeth Fraser will feature on the tour as well as other yet to be announced collaborators.
Robert Del Naja says of the tour: “It’s going to be a one off piece of work; our own personalised nostalgia nightmare head trip”
