Former Cocteau Twins frontwoman Elizabeth Fraser continued her unexpected public reemergence this week by performing, as advertised, with Massive Attack as the trip-hop legends celebrate the 21st anniversary of their album Mezzanine.
Fraser appeared on-stage with Massive Attack for four songs — the Mezannine tracks she appears on, “Black Milk,” “Teardrop,” “Group Four,” and a cover of “Where Have All the Flowers Gone?” — at the group’s tour opener on Monday night in Glasgow, and, again, at tonight’s show in Manchester.
Both concerts featured the same setlist, which included songs from Mezzanine as well as covers of tracks that were sampled on the record, such as The Cure’s “10.15 Saturday Night.”
The tour runs through February in Europe then comes to America in March; see full dates over here.
Below, check out video of Fraser performing in Glasgow and Manchester — and that Cure cover.
