Listen to Neneh Cherry’s “Out of the Black” featuring Robyn

Last fall, Neneh Cherry made an exciting announcement – she was returning with her first album of solo material in more than 16 years. A collaboration with RocketNumberNine, and produced by Four Tet, the ten-track album, titled Blank Projectwas recorded and mixed in five days. Today, Neneh reveals the lead single, “Out of the Black” featuring kindred spirit Robyn.

“Out of the Black” features Neneh and Robyn harmonizing together and throwing lines back and forth. Production by Four Tet and minimal synth and drum work by RocketNumberNine underpin the sweet vocal work of the two iconic Swedish artists. Before now, the two have been vocal about inspiring each other, with Robyn covering Neneh’s songs in her live shows.

 

One need only check the history of Neneh putting a subversive foot forward and letting popular music catch up. Growing up around father Don Cherry‘s friends Miles Davis and Allen Ginsburg, she launched her solo career with a Falkland’s protest song called “Stop The War.” In the early 80s, she was in the pioneering multi-ethnic, anarchic, post-punk group,Rip Rig + Panic; she brought hip-hop culture to a British audience with “Buffalo Stance”(redefining cool by performing pregnant on “Top of the Pops”) and had the first global hit to feature the Senegalese language, Wolof, “7 Seconds.” With “Out of the Black” featuring Robyn and a remix by dance floor maven Joe Goddard (Hot Chip2Bears) still to come, Neneh is emerging out of the black with another vital blast of buzzing cold music.

“Blank Project finds Cherry comfortable in her own skin, even as she jostles amongst the noise of the ten thousand things, health issues, grimy sidewalks, and ‘Crack-smoking hussies’ on ‘Everything.'” — Pitchfork

“Four Tet’s sparse, apocalyptic production practically demands Yeezus comparisons. But then again, Cherry was singing over sparse, brutal, state-of-the-art rap sonics nearly a quarter century ago.”  — Stereogum

 

“The concoction sounds like little else.” — FACT Magazine

“In complex times, it’s a fine example of bullshit-free generational empowerment.”

— Drowned In Sound

 

“Four Tet gives an unpredictable pop star a brand new stance. A dream partnership.”

— Q Magazine ****

 

“The absolute Cherry bomb.” — MOJO ****

“‘Out of The Black’ is one of the best moments, a defiant, emphatic statement of identity.”

— The Wire
