Massive Attack is getting porny. And, actually, it was their idea. The band commissioned a series of short films to go with select tracks from their newest album, Heliogland, which is set to be released on Tuesday. The song "Paradise Circus" accompanies a video titled Life of a Pornstar about Georgina Spelvin, whose most famous role was that in The Devil in Miss Jones. The film not only interviews Spelvin, but cuts between shots of her talking as an elderly woman and sex scenes from the film. You can watch this and the other shorts on Massive Attack's page. For a listen to the unreleased album, NPR will let you stream the whole thing on their website.
