Album Stream: Neneh Cherry - Blank Project

Neneh Cherry

We've been hotly anticipating Neneh Cherry's Blank Project, her first solo record in eighteen years, since its announcement; I mean, how could we not - produced by Four Tet, with Rocketnumbernine as her backing band and Robyn contributing a guest verse, it's an all-star affair from a woman who's always had her finger a little bit before the pulse of contemporary pop. Take a listen courtesy NPR a week in advance of the record's physical release date - we're loving its bare-bones, prowling minimalism, Cherry's vocals battling with but never being drowned out by of-the-moment musical backdrops. Check it out - you can pick up a physical copy February 25.
