Smalltown Supersound has just announced Neneh Cherry’s first solo album in over 16 years – a collaboration with RocketNumberNine (Thomas and Benjamin Page), produced by Four Tet, and featuring a guest appearance by Robyn.
The album was made over a five-day period, recording and mixing two songs a day. “It was a liberating experience, not endlessly trying to fiddle with the music, re-recording hundreds of times. These days it’s easy to create any effect or sound on a computer; it is much harder to get the rawness I think we’ve achieved,” commented Cherry.
This solo album, her first since the release of Man in 1996, follows The Cherry Thing, her collaborative record with Scandinavian free jazz, noise collective, The Thing, which featured new versions of songs by The Stooges, MF Doom, Ornette Coleman, amongst others.
