Last year, Tricky released his autobiography Hell Is Round the Corner. Named after a song from his debut record ‘Maxinquaye’, which NME named as the best album of 1995, the book was written in collaboration with the music writer Andrew Perry.

In an interview he gave back in November, Tricky explained why he turned down the offer of performing for the Queen as part of the Millennium Dome celebrations in 2000.

“I went down to these offices at Buckingham Palace and had a meeting with these people, and I was like, ‘Alright how much?’” he recalled.

“And they said, ‘Well no, it’s for the Queen.’ They thought because it’s such a huge thing, I’d do it for free! So I turned that down.”
