Listen: Francesca Belmonte – ‘Are You’

Spectral, spooky newcomer...

Tricky knows a great vocalist when he hears one.

The legendary rapper and producer has earned a reputation for uncovering new talent, for matching his husky, whispered rhymes to something soulful.

Francesca Belmonte is his latest discovery. Signed to the rapper's own False Idols imprint, the singer has been given a base to truly find herself.

Debut album 'Anima' is out on June 1st, matching atmospheric arrangements to often devastating vocal performances.

New track 'Are You' is online now, fusing metallic breaks and synth swells to a tender, frail melody.
