Neneh Cherry returned earlier this year with the Four Tet-produced Blank Project, her first full-on solo album in 18 years. Now, she’s reunited with one of her old music-video directors, the veteran French fashion photographer Jean-Baptiste Mondino, who first worked with Cherry on her “Manchild” video in 1989. Mondino did Cherry’s video for the seven-and-a-half-minute workout “Everything,” and the entire thing is one shot, a long, exceedingly slow zoom-in on Cherry as she frantically dances her way across a gigantic white room. It’s a fitting tribute to Cherry’s berserker charisma, and you can watch it below.
Blank Project is out now on Smalltown Supersound. Also, Cherry has been added to the bill at Chicago’s Pitchfork Music Festival, which, according to her publicist, will mark Cherry’s second North American performance ever.
