Neneh Cherry & The Thing – “Dream Baby Dream” (Suicide Cover)
Singer Neneh Cherry, who had some hits in the ’80s, will put out an LP alongside Scandinavian jazz ensemble the Thing this summer, and the first glimpse of that is their cover of Suicide’s “Dream Baby Dream.” It’s an exultant interpretation, a track that follows a chaotic, cathartic instrumental breakdown into the clouds, Cherry chanting “Dream baby dream … keep that flame burning!” the whole way. It’s a notable angle and a powerful interpretation, for sure. Listen below.
The Cherry Thing is out 6/19 on Smalltown Supersound.
