With his latest album Adrian Thaws out now on his own False Idols imprint, Tricky unveils the striking music video for the single “Sun Down,” which features guest vocals from Tirzah. Actor Norman Reedus of the hit television show ‘The Walking Dead’ co-stars with Tricky, along with actress Mizuo Peck (Night At The Museum, A Case of You).
The music video, which Tricky directed himself, was shot in Brooklyn and features Reedus and Tricky playing fictionalized versions of themselves dealing with the ugly fallout of a domestic dispute.
“It was so good working with Norman and Mizuo,” says Tricky. “Lee Jaffe has been telling me for a long time I need to direct more. Working with Norman and Mizuo have really inspired me to go and direct another movie.”
The introduction to the video is soundtracked by the Young Fathers remix of Tricky’s “Nicotine Love.”
The Adrian Thaws album continues a prolific period for Tricky, following last year’s acclaimed False Idols album. The record features collaborations with Nneka, Mykki Blanco, Blue Daisy, Oh Land, Bella Gotti, and Francesca Belmonte. A remix package for “Sun Down” is due in September.
