The trip hop pioneer Tricky returns after a three-year break with with some U.S. tour dates, and a few songs to tease False Idols. His 10th studio album marks his first since 2010’s Mixed Race and revolves around the artist “finding himself again,” according to a press release.

You can feel the redux of his classic debut, Maxinquaye, over these tracks, especially the brooding “Does It”, which features singer Francesca Belmonte (who appears multiple times on the album). Listen to five new tracks below.

False Idols is out May 28th via Tricky’s own imprint False Idols. Here’s the tracklist:
