Neneh Cherry has announced a new album, titled The Versions, out June 10 via Republic Records. The album is a set of reworked versions of material from throughout her catalog, featuring an all-women lineup of artists, including Jamila Woods, Robyn, ANOHNI, Sudan Archives and more. Today, she’s shared a new version of “Manchild,” featuring Sia. Hear it below.
Sia says in a press release, “Neneh was my favorite artist when she hit the scene. I saved my pocket money for red filas and dreamt one day we would meet. When I was struggling with my mental health in my early twenties, I somehow ended up in their house being taken care of as if I was one of their own children. I called her husband during a suicide attempt, who had been mentoring me as an incredible music producer, and they gave me all the love I could have dreamt of. I owe them a huge thanks and would sing ‘a-b-c’ for them if they asked. Neneh, my very first queen, Cameron my bonus dad, I love you forever amen!”
Neneh Cherry’s last album was 2018’s Broken Politics.
