Sia + Nenah Cherry Revisit ‘Manchild’: Look + Listen

Neneh Cherry has recruited Sia for a vibe-driven rework of her 1989 single, “Manchild.”

The new version of the late-80s title is slated to appear on Cherry’s forthcoming 10-track album The Versions, a collaborative collection of covers from the UK artist’s catalogue by an all-female line-up, including Robyn, Sia, Kelsey Lu, Jamila Woods, Tyson, and more.

Of all the featured artists on the LP having a personal connection to Neneh’s music, Sia stated:

“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.”

Prior top ‘Manchild’ Cherry previously released a reimagined version of her hit “Buffalo Stance” featuring Robyn and Mapei alongside a vibrant music video starring Pose cast member Indya Moore.
