Massive Attack's first (and hopefully not only) release of 2016, gets underway today with the release of a new 4 track EP entitled Ritual Spirit. The EP was mainly written and produced by 3D and Euan Dickinson. The press release for the EP also intriguingly states that there will be a second EP out shortly that is more Daddy G centric, and with that to be followed by a new album later this year.

If your reading this, then there's good chance you've heard the news that 3D is to release an art book (a visual companion, if you will) on the history of Massive Attack. I think it's an exciting prospect for many fans, since he's teased it quite often in interviews in the least few years, and to many fans (myself included), the band's visual identity has made almost as big an impression as their music down through the years.
They say the physical single is dying out. I suppose in this iTunes era, were music can be consumed at the click of a button, that that is probably true. And that is even more truer for bands such as Massive Attack, who for a long time now, have been a self-proclaimed "albums" band.
Every band's got em'. Those songs that are not on any of their albums or singles. Songs that for whatever reason have'nt got any kind of release. Fans may have heard them from the band in question experimenting with it live or having it featured on the soundtrack to whatever. Massive Attack ain't no different. They've got some pretty listenable tunes, if I do say so, that are'nt anyway to found anywhere in record stores or on iTunes. I've picked out ten of them for this poll along with a quick background to the track and what I think is the best sounding audio we have of it to date.
