Neneh Cherry is a Swedish singer-songwriter hailing from Stockholm. Born in 1964, she’s become one of the country’s favourite hip-hop and rap stars, while she’s an equally talented DJ too and can even boost a selection of radio broadcasts, even for the BBC.
Creating a unique brand of alternative hip-hop, blending elements of other music into the original style she was influenced by in her earlier years. This sound has earned her fame worldwide, and her albums - solo, with CirKus, and The Thing - have charted and sold across all four corners of the globe. In 2014, she returned with her first personal record for almost 18 years.
Cherry will back her new album, 'Broken Politics', with UK, US, Australian and European tour dates stretching into spring 2019, including a Valentine's Day show at London's Roundhouse in February. Catch her live by checking out the tour dates and concert ticket information below on Stereoboard.

‘Broken Politics’ is Neneh Cherry’s fifth studio album her second in collaboration with producer Kieran Hebden, who performs as Four Tet. The result is a rich, trip-hop melange that expertly packages Cherry’s spoken word with elegant far eastern patches and motifs. It’s music that feels like it was born in the ‘90s, but it also has a degree of currency - if not urgency.
