Neneh Cherry returns after her 18-year hiatus with “Blank Project”, produced entirely by Four Tet.
The timing of releases can be amazing sometimes. On the same day I was talking to a friend on Twitter about Swedish pop music, I stumbled upon Neneh Cherry’s brand new album stream via Soundcloud. Blank Project is her first offering since her 1996 album, Man and a full 25 years since the blockbuster Raw Like Sushi. Much like the years have passed so too has Neneh’s “stance” in music and so there isn’t anything funky and hip about Blank Project. Instead, the Swedish singer-songwriter has decided to go down Four Tet’s aesthetic rabbit hole with some dark and sometimes fraught lyricism but overall electric. It’s a brilliant musical marriage for fans of either performer.
