As mentioned, Neneh Cherry will release Blank Project, her first solo album in 18 years, next week (2/25) via Smalltown Supersound. Produced by Four Tet, the record is stripped down, raw, and live, letting Cherry's still powerful voice carry most of the weight. Some of it even recall her early years in postpunk bands Rip Rig & Panic and Float Up CP, and Robyn shows up on "Out of the Black" for guest vocals. You can stream the Robyn collaboration and a couple other tracks below, or listen to the whole thing via NPR.

Speaking of, Four Tet plays a NYC's Terminal 5 this Saturday (2/22) with Martyn (live) and Anthony Naples (DJ). Tickets are still available.
