Interview with Robert Del Naja and Grant Marshall from Massive Attack / December 2009 MKZWO: When was the new album Heligoland made? Robert: We’ve been making our fifth studio album since we started our first album, it feels like. It has been an inevitable sort of course and trajectory. But when it was going to be finished was probably the question that no one could answer. We’ve probably had various versions of this album almost finished in the last sort of 4 years, and amidst other projects, distractions, its kind of nearly materialised, and it hasn’t, you know.
