Bildergebnis für neneh cherry kong

Good news: Neneh Cherry is back and she announced the release of her new album. The first single Kong is out now and as hoped for nothing big has changed. For this song she has obliged two dimensions of the electronic music as producers: Kieran Hebden alias Four Tet who already primed "Blank Project" with his impressionistic Electronica and Robert "3D" Del Naja, Well, one of the foundation members of the TripHop institution Massive Attack. Together they have created a hypnotic night music in downtempo about which Neneh can spread out her voice - which still gets under skin. Also the text touches; a difficult balancing act between empathy and fury about the European refugee crisis.

Love forsaken, risk worth taking
Spearmint flavors, all my palate shudders
I’m a member of shattered illusions
And am I needless to say?
Another song, this is nothing new
But love is big in every man
Every nation seeks its friends in France and Italy
And all across the seven seas
And Goddamn guns and guts and history
And bitter love still put a hole in me
