Neneh Cherry reveals eight of the records that have shaped her life in the new issue of Uncut.

Cherry, who returns with a long-awaited new album, Blank Project, on February 25, picks an eclectic mix of tracks, from Marvin Gaye and Leon Thomas to X-Ray Spex and A Tribe Called Quest.

“When this came out I was living outside Stockholm on an island,” Cherry says, discussing Burial’s 2006 self-titled album. “We had an amazing view of the water. This represents that little era, like it’s creating a soundtrack around you.

“I listened to it over and over, and was struck by its resonance and soulfulness, the depths, the sounds, the beats, the melancholy… I’m addicted to contrast, so this album brought the concrete to the country.”

The new issue of Uncut is out now.
