Neneh Cherry and The Thing: "Dream Baby Dream"

People have been understandably curious about The Cherry Thing, the surprising collaboration between Neneh Cherry and free-jazz monster, The Thing, scheduled to be released on June 19 by Smalltown Supersound.

For now, we can hear the band’s version of Suicide’s “Dream Baby Dream.”

I love this song.

It’s wonderful—a gift, really—that something can be so soothing, such a lullaby, and also be so blindingly powerful.

She sounds like Dinah Washington by way of Macy Gray I like that weird tinkling and lazy horns in the background...what is that? Combustilbe man..
