"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 on the charts 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 aggressive, upbeat revenge scenario in James Brown's track has been inverted to be a song about safety and healing.

Michel Gondry directed the music video for the track.
