My opinion on the most recent song from Swedish iconoclast-pop veteran Neneh Cherry was, um, not very forgiving. But, as in all things musical, all one needs to fix up a busted vibe is get Robyn on the mic. “Out of the Black” is a slow-creeper, with either woman trading the mic back and forth, but when your girl shows up to spit a rudimentary verse, the thing comes alive. The Four Tet produced track is on Cherry’s Blank Project, out later this month.
While I’m pysched to see Robyn working with anyone, as in the news of her recent trip into the studio with Röyksopp, I think I can speak for all of us fans and say GET THE NEW RECORD DONE PLEASE. (h/t Vanyaland)
