Martina Topley-Bird is to release her eagerly awaited debut solo album Quixotic on July 14th. Ranging from ambient ballads to swamp-boogie, from shattering rock to brutal electronica, Quixotic looks set to re-establish Martina as an essential voice on the musical landscape.
In the mid 90's with her then musical partner Tricky, Martina redefined music with the highly acclaimed Maxinquaye album followed by the Nearly God, Pre-Millennium tension and Angels With Dirty Faces lp's.
Featuring production credits from the likes of David Holmes (Too Tough To Die) and Tricky (Ragga), Quixotic also features string arrangements from David Arnold (Of James Bond and Bjork fame) on Days Of A Gun and guitars and backing vocals by Queens of the Stone Ages Josh Homme and Mark Lanegan on debut single Need One.
Martina heads off on a nationwide tour to coincide with the album launch in July. See below for full tour dates.
