Neneh Cherry Ropes In Four Tet, Jim O'Rourke, Merzbow for 'The Cherry Thing Remixes'
Earlier this year, Neneh Cherry teamed up with jazz troupe the Thing to rework a number of her favourite tunes on The Cherry Thing. Her covers of Suicide, the Stooges, Madvillain and more is about to get next-level, however, with news that a group of electronically geared musicians will be reinterpreting Cherry and the Thing's interpretations. The album name, naturally, will be The Cherry Thing Remixes.
