The case of Neneh Cherry is a curious one. Her debut album, 1989’s Raw Like Sushi, stunned critics, but since then the enigmatic singer has taken her time to craft follow-ups to that career defining set, most recently releasing a collaborative album with jazz collective The Thing on The Cherry Thing last year.
Now the Swedish-born singer is set to release a solo album, produced solely by Four Tet. Cherry has not lost any of her amazing talents, as she sounds as vital and raw as ever before. “Blank Project” tiptoes the line between experimental and recognizable, never feeling too safe or too challenging.
Blank Project is out 26 February 2014 in the U.S. and a day earlier internationally on Smalltown Supersound.
