Massive Attack Start Work On Their Fifth Album

The first news about [b]Massive Attack[/b]'s fifth album has leaked. In the tradition of the faintly ethereal female vocalists favoured by the band, singer-songwriter [b]Stephanie Dosen[/b] is currently in the studio working with 3D et al.

Dosen follows in the tradition of such illustrious singers as [b]Tracey Thorn[/b] and [b]Liz Fraser[/b] as a guest of Massive. On their last album, 2003's "100th Window", the band were joined by [b]Sinead O'Connor[/b] on three songs.

Dosen came to prominence this year with her winsome debut album, "A Lily For The Spectre".

She'll be appearing as a guest on Later. . . With Jools Holland this Friday (November 30).
