This past fall, Neneh Cherry announced she was returning with her first solo album in over 16 years -- a collaboration with RocketNumberNine, produced by Four Tet and featuring a guest appearance by Robyn -- and shared the album's title track, "Blank Project." The album, initially written as a means of working through personal tragedy and a departure from anything she's previously done, combines elements of beat poetry, avant-electronica and beautiful vocal melodies to create something entirely original.
To kick off 2014, Neneh has revealed a completely new track off Blank Project, the album's closer, "Everything," as well as a remix of the track by iconic techno producer/DJ Ricardo Villalobos and Max Loderbauer. Listen to both below and watch an exclusive performance of Blank Project's "Weightless" and "Blank Project" at Studio 360, the interview of which will air next month. Furthermore, delve deeper into the world of Neneh Cherry by reading Pitchfork's new "Update" feature with her -- http://pitchfork.com/features/update/9287-neneh-cherry/.
Blank Project is out February 25, 2014 on Smalltown Supersound. Those in Europe can catch Neneh live in select cities beginning the week of the album's release.
