The return of Neneh Cherry is just five days away, as the trip-hop artist is set to release her first album in four years, Broken Politics. She’s already previewed the Four Tet-produced effort, which follows 2014’s Blank Project, with the tracks “Kong” and “Shot Gun Shack”. Today, she’s back with another single called “Natural Skin Deep”.

The track is wonderfully all over the place, cascading shimmers, shakes, and pulses stacked on top of each other in hypnotic fashion. There’s even an air horn in there. “Natural Skin Deep” comes to us via the Adult Swim Singles Series. Update: Cherry has let loose her second offering of the week in “Synchronised Devotion”.

Take a listen to both below.


Broken Politics is officially out this Friday, October 19th, via Smalltown Supersound/Awal Recordings. In support, Cherry has lined up shows in Los Angeles and New York; consult her full itinerary.
