British trip-hop pioneers Morcheeba return with their first new album in over
five years. The band have released 8 albums that have sold in excess of 10 million
records in their career. ‘Blaze Away’, their positivity-packed ninth album, marks
both a fresh start in its organic approach and a return to the joyous genre-mashing
of their early days, with featured guests Roots Manuva and Benjamin Biolay. There
was no template for its ten, extraordinary, future-facing songs, no self-imposed
limits on style, no themes to be adhered to or rules in place to break.
Morcheeba’s global success is no surprise. Their melting pot sound has been
border-hopping ever since the London-based band emerged from the mid-’90s
trip hop scene that made them a household name. They’re about to embark on
what’s shaping up to be their biggest world tour yet, taking in headline shows and
festivals globally, and debuting new tracks from their upcoming record, as well as
playing classics to the delight of their global fan base.
