SWEDISH RAPPER Neneh Cherry has released her first solo album in 18 years.
Cherry, who turns 50 next month, is best known for infusing hip-hop with other musical influences including jazz, dance and pop.
The long-awaited Blank Project is an eerie, compelling affair featuring evocative beat-style poetry.
The whole album was written in Cherry’s bedroom using the same Casio synth she has had for 20 years, it has been reported.
