After ‘s Blank Project , one might have assumed it would be a while before Cherry’s next album the last, Man, came out in Perhaps world events have given her a sense of urgency. Entitled Broken Politics, Cherry’s latest references the refugee crisis, gun violence, fascism, racism and a collective sense of despair. But Cherry knows how to wrap these subjects in something sweeter. The scope of Broken Politics takes in both our outward political moment as well as its effects on our interior life. The music that accompanies her has an equally wide scope. She again taps Four Tet for production duties—he also produced Blank Project. His dulcet harps and shuffling snares make “Fallen Leaves” feel all the more poignant. The album otherwise is loose and natural, more about being in the moment than presenting something carefully crafted.
Greatest Un-Hits: Neneh Cherry, “Buddy X” (1993)
From Portishead to Neneh Cherry: Showing a skateboarder making his way through the city as darkness falls and streetlights and neon signs flicker on, it doesn’t romanticize Los Angeles. You see the incongruity of geese honking in the concrete of the L. Neneh Cherry’s first solo album in 16 years, ‘Blank Project’ February 24, By Chris Barton “Good things come to those who wait,” Neneh Cherry sings over stormy electronics and a skittering rhythm on her first solo album in 16 years.
If there’s a lingering take-away from “Blank Project,” that’s it.

Tightly packed rows of shops and houses suddenly stop and in their place are unattended scrap heaps and disquieting industrial estates. Cherry, wearing a Motley Crue t-shirt stitched into an NHS gown, performs the new material bouncing around with a kinetic urgency. Her sometimes-spoken, sometimes-screeching, soul-flooded vocals are raw and disarming.
But while her demeanor might not have changed, musically this is a departure from anything she has done before. Elements of beat poetry, avant-electronica and beautiful vocal melodies combine to make pop music that sounds like nothing else you could call pop music. Why is she making her first solo record in almost two decades? Neneh had always been independent — she left home before she was 16 and has often lived in different countries to her family.
I started to catastrophise everything. Gradually, she brought them to her husband and long-time collaborator, Cameron Mcvey, and they began working them into skeletal songs. Sometimes I picture myself, maybe on the street in New York or somewhere under a bridge in Hackney. There are always two sides to any story. Throughout that record, Neneh continued to write and at the start of this year she came to this room in Walthamstow to work with RocketNumberNine.
But when we got in the studio with him, he just wanted to take stuff away rather than add stuff, strip it bare.
Show Review Neneh Cherry’s voice is beautiful and soothing, but her new video for “Kong” has an angry energy about it as she sings about xenophobia and colonialism. Blending hip hop with other influences, Cherry experienced mainstream success with several of her recordings. In London, Cherry joined the punk rock band The Cherries. She began a solo career with “Stop the War”, a protest song about the Falkland Islands.

The artist herself, Neneh Cherry, was equally unaccountable. Here was a singer with a vaguely New York drawl and the odd Cockney riff, who seemed unplaceable in terms of character as well as nationality. She scowled as she rapped, her juicy foul mouth pressed close to the camera. According to the lyrics, the object of her scorn was a pimp who had tried to recruit her.
Yet Cherry was just as dismissive of everyone else on the street: The cacophonous mix of samples and tribal beats suggested a portrait of street life, with an unforgiving narrator breaking the scene down to its tawdriest details. Even today, Cherry remains one of the most disorientingly eclectic of artists. On her debut album, Raw Like Sushi , most of the tracks are catchy yet confusingly dense, throwing us off with their mood changes and far-flung references.
Her voice switches nationalities within a single breath; she can come across as a sage or a brat, sophisticated or cacklingly malicious. Her tough persona implies a straightforward approach to her craft, but what the music presents is harder to decipher. On the first track, ‘Buffalo Stance’, Cherry already comes across as a fully formed artist: But Cherry is no “minority” demanding to be empowered: Her voice immediately assumes a central position; there’s no sense of her breaking through from the margins.
