Joseph

Album: Knowle West Boy (2008)

Songfacts®:

  • Tricky explained the title of this song on his record label's website: "Joseph is one of two songs I've named after the tune's lead singer. I met him outside a food shop in LA. He was a busker. Problem is… I've lost his details. I have no idea where this kid is now. So I called it Joseph so, hopefully, he hears it somewhere and gets in touch. 'Cos I want to work with him again."
