Neneh Cherry announces new album 'Broken Politics'

After returning earlier this month to share the single 'Kong', Neneh Cherry has now announced her plans for a new studio album to arrive later in the year.

The new full-length 'Broken Politics' has been entirely produced by Four Tet, is being previewed by the new single 'Shotgun Shack', and is due to be released on the 19th October via AWAL Recordings.

Speaking about the new record, she said, "I like writing from a personal perspective, and the time we live in is so much about finding your own voice. People have been left feeling misheard, misunderstood, and disillusioned. What the fuck can I do? Maybe politics starts in your bedroom, or your house—a form of activism, and a responsibility. The album is about all of those things: feeling broken, disappointed, and sad, but having perseverance. It's a fight against the extinction of free thought and spirit."

"I have a name. You have a name. We're not just these faceless mounds you can put in the ground. We're human beings with lives and stories."
