Massive Attack today release the music video for ‘The Spoils’. The video stars Cate Blanchett and is directed by John Hillcoat (The Road, Lawless and The Proposition).

The track was one of two new songs released by the group last month; ‘The Spoils’ featuring vocals from Hope Sandoval and ‘Come Near Me (ft. Ghostpoet)’. The video for ‘Come Near Me’ which debuted at the end of July, was directed by Ed Morris and stars Kosovan actress Arta Dobroshi.

Both ‘The Spoils’ and ‘Come Near Me’ are written and produced by Massive Attack’s Daddy G and collaborator Stew Jackson. The release is the follow-up to January’s Ritual Spirit EP, which was written and produced by the band’s Robert del Naja and collaborator Euan Dickinson.
