Martina sings on 'Babel' and 'Psyche', which she also co-wrote. She recorded two more songs with Massive Attack, but unfortunately they were not included on the album: 'Invade Me' and 'Red Light'. Red Light was only released as a remix by Clark later on the Atlas Air EP (see below). 
The Japanese CD has one bonus track:
11. Fatalism (Ryuichi Sakamoto & Yukihiro Takahashi Remix) 
There's also an extended digital version with more songs and a digital booklet, nothing Martina-related, though:
11. Paradise Circus (Gui Boratto Remix)  8:07

> Grant Marshall: "We've always thought she was amazing, but politically we never really approached her because of the Tricky situation." <
(BBC

> 3D: "There was one track called -Invade Me’ with Martina (Topley Bird) and we cut it with it on and with it off. It’s difficult to know if it was one track too many, not in terms of the length of album but in terms of mood." <

* featuring Martina Topley-Bird

Redlight is one of two songs that Martina recorded with Massive Attack, but were not released on Heligoland. This is the only version released, so we can only guess how the original version would have sounded like. They also performed the song live together, this is the best sound quality that I could find: You Tube.
The video is not on the 12", of course, it has the following trackorder:
A1   Redlight (Clark Remix)
A2   Atlas Air (Jneiro Jarel's Lavender Remix)
AA   Atlas Air (Goldsworthy Remix) 
All earnings of this released are used to support the organization "Warchild".
