Neneh Cherry and The Thing met for the first time at a recording session in London in the fall of 2010. It clicked right away as they all shared an open, free approach to the music. The high energy of The Thing’s playing found a fitting counterpart in Neneh’s intense style. After a performance at Strand, Stockholm in March 2011 it was decided to continue the collaboration.
As a solo artist, Cherry hit big straight away with the worldwide hit singles Buffalo Stance, Manchild and Inna City Mamma from her debut album Raw Like Sushi. More followed, like Buddy X from the Homebrew & Man albums, which also featured Woman and 7 Seconds. After the Man album Neneh decided to step off the corporate music business tread mill preferring to collaborate with artists such as 'Tricky', 'Damon Albarn' on his 'Gorillaz' project & her own family collective 'cirKus'.
The Thing was established in the spring of 2000 when the three musicians met to play several concerts and to record their first CD on the Crazy Wisdom label(brain child of Swedish left field pioneer Conny Lindström). In 2001 they recorded another CD on the same label as a quartet with Joe McPhee.
