Neneh Cherry has released a new Four Tet-produced album, Broken Politics, today via Smalltown Supersound. Now that the album is out, you can stream the whole thing below. Also below are her upcoming tour dates.

Previously she shared four songs from it: "Kong" (which was one of our Songs of the Week), "Shot Gun Shack" (which was also one of our Songs of the Week), "Natural Skin Deep," and "Synchronized Devotion."

Speaking of Broken Politics' album title and the album as a whole, Cherry said this in a previous press release: "I'm very shy about taking on big themes with the airs that I've got a solution-who has the fucking solutions? I like writing from a personal perspective, and the time we live in is so much about finding your own voice. People have been left feeling misheard, misunderstood, and disillusioned. What the fuck can I do? Maybe politics starts in your bedroom, or your house-a form of activism, and a responsibility. The album is about all of those things: feeling broken, disappointed, and sad, but having perseverance. It's a fight against the extinction of free thought and spirit."

"Kong" was co-produced by Four Tet and Massive Attack's 3D and shared via a video directed by Jenn Nkiru (Kamasi Washington). Cherry's last album was 2014's Blank Project, which was also produced by Four Tet. Turner Prize winning Wolfgang Tillmans designed the Broken Politics' cover art. The album was recorded in Woodstock, NY.
