Too often when a singer dies there’s a rush to go through the vaults and release any old rubbish just to cash in. This is the very opposite…

A lovingly compiled mixtape made up of songs and moments from the recording sessions 3D of Massive Attack conducted with the singer-songwriter Terry Callier in 2005.

 “I took the liberty of stripping them back to a more personal space and cut in alternative vocals and chuckles, in an attempt to share a little of the spirit of the great man,” says the Massive Attack man.

Terry Callier died in October. This is a fitting tribute (and free) tribute to his unique talent.
