Ahead of the release of her new album ‘Broken Politics’ this Friday, Pitchfork has interviewed Neneh Cherry, stating that “even by pop vanguard standards, it’s fair to say Neneh Cherry has done more, seen more, been more than most”, Pitchfork published a feature on the music the records meant the most to her throughout her life. In the interview, the 54 year old Swedish singer traces her musical influences throughout her whole life – mentioning the likes of ABBA, Lil’ Kim and Frank Ocean.

“In the mid ’70s, my parents wanted to leave America. There was a lot of protest, because the Vietnam War was in full swing. When I was 10, we bought a house in the south of Sweden, which is still the family home. That’s also when ABBA first came out, and my friend and I spent the summer practicing a show in which we mimed all their songs. We worked 10 hours a day on this performance. That was the Waterloo Year.” - Neneh Cherry
