Description

Music video by Massive Attack performing Protection. 

"Protection" is a collaboration between Massive Attack and Everything But the Girl singer Tracey Thorn, that appeared on Massive Attack's album Protection on CD and 12" in 1994. It reached #14 in the UK Singles Chart, staying there for four weeks. The song was also included on Everything But the Girl's compilations The Best of and Like the Deserts Miss the Rain.

The song contains samples taken from The Payback by James Brown, namely the hi-hat/bass figure that drives the beat and the recurrent wah-wah guitar chord. The subject of "Protection" is an inversion of the aggressive, upbeat revenge scenario in James Brown's track.

Michel Gondry directed the music video for the track.
