Neneh Cherry has shared her first new solo music since 2014's Blank Project. The new single, "Kong," finds the Swedish artist pondering colonialism and the refugee crisis atop a tranquilized production courtesy of Four Tet and 3D (of Massive Attack). "Every nation seeks its friends in France & Italy," she sings, "and all across the 7 seas, and goddam guns and guts and bitter love still put a hole in me."
The accompanying video was directed by Jenn Nkiru, who was recently 2nd unit director for Beyoncé and JAY-Z's "APESHIT" video. Cherry has also announced three performances this fall, in Stockholm, London, and Paris. Check those dates below.
Neneh Cherry fall 2018 tour dates:
