"He is back!" - Many artists like these sought phrase already used for a period of one to two years between the release of two albums to signal to: there is something new! at Eagle Eye Cherry The situation is somewhat different.
He is undoubtedly an artist with one of the voices that were blessed in the late 90s and early Noughties years in the international music circus with the most recognizable. His debut album "Desireless" in 1998 sat down immediately after publication 29 weeks in the charts firmly - not least due to the strong first single from the album "Save Tonight". A song that - would these placarding also fOr music give - now the "World Heritage" to count would be. The most successful hit dominated 26 weeks the sales chart, spending a whole 31 weeks in the Airplay Charts, including 15 weeks in the top ten.
The Singles succession albums "Living In The Present Future" (2000) and "Sub Rosa" (2003) managed all placements in the airplay charts, including the singles "Falling In Love Again", "Are You Still Having Fun" and "Long Way Around", he together with his half-sister Neneh Cherry recorded. The rat turned to fOr Eagle Eye Cherry. It was faster and faster. take while many other colleagues in the music business in such times bring no more time to air and be consumed by the sudden collapse occurred Eagle Eye Cherry out on the brakes and from said rat.
"It was simply time to gain a bit of distance", reflects on 7 May 1968 in the Swedish capital Stockholm, the son of musician Don and Moki Cherry born Eagle Eye Cherry pensive. "I just came from a great live and promotional tour for my third plate and felt downright burn as I started."
Now, almost seven years later, he emerged from his self-imposed exile on again. And "He is back!" gets on his new album "Can not Get Enough"; a different meaning. "The idea that time is relative yields, for me today more sense than ever," he explains. "It feels not so long, but when I think about it, I'm surprised how much time has passed. My life has completely changed while I was gone," he continues, "just like the music industry. .. "
In these seven years, much has happened. "When we knuckled us just right in the recordings for this album, my mother [the Swedish artist is Moki Cherry] Completely died unexpectedly. This brought everything to a halt, "recalls Cherry back. The interesting thing is when my father died [of pioneering, unclassifiable trumpeter and multi-instrumentalist Don Cherry] I was just starting to make music - I lacked the focus, I looked my way. When we lost him, I found that he had done so much in his life for music and other areas that I owed him there myself together. I had to stop wasting my time and move forward. This created my first album. The same happened when my mother died. I knew I had to get out and I get to work "
The result of this work is the most concentrated, most dynamic work of the entire career of the singer-songwriter Cherry. An irresistible direct album that combines technically flawless pop craft masterfully with a very human combination of vulnerability and amazement. A mixture containing Cherry has taken over the world for prestigious live performer. "It was a conscious decision to keep it straight and simple," explains Cherry. "I searched my collaborators and we decided to do the following:. Reduce it to the essentials and leave as straight as possible to sound"
Cherry worked alternately with the co-producer Klas Åhlund by Teddybears, Peter Svensson of the Cardigans and his longtime guitarist and sideman Mattias Torell, over the Cherry lovingly says: "He is the Tonto to my Lone Ranger". The sound on "Can not Get Enough" is to the point. Without it but petty act. Cherrys songs - catchy, curious and above all sincere - are the focus. The first single "Can not Get Enough" is disarming in its clarity, groove and melody are virtually inseparable and equally contagious.
Cherrys natural given talent as a storyteller is the songs on "Can not Get Enough" to let establish conflicts, to feel them on the tooth to defuse it, and so to make understandable complex subjects even. "In fact, I sometimes like texts that are not quite so directly," he says, "but this time it was precisely about not making it Overly complicated. In the end, I had great pleasure in what they came up with ..." , If he like in a song "Free" fundamental contradictions exposes ( "When you hated me / you freed me to love ..." // "When you hate test me / you gave me to love freedom ...") runs Cherry to fine form on - innocent and simultaneously provocative.
The new songs on "Can not Get Enough" show an artist who is wiedererstarkt by the time interval and eager to leave to celebrate and act the power of music. Just as at the beginning of his career: Curious, relaxing and gaining strength emerged from massive upheaval. To those in his private life, as well as those in a massively changing musical landscape.
"I had a few demos of new songs," remembers Cherry itself, "and took me reactions of the people around me in. I realized pretty quickly that the business had changed. In the old way would make things just do not go so fast. I knew that I just for myself had to go ahead and take the plate done without all these attempts to influence third parties to meetings they talked always about how hard it is out there now;.. about how it used to be, "remarks Cherry dry. "There was a very negative, depressed Vibe The people of my present Labels -. Which we finally got together to release the album - were the first, who came and said 'we love the music - what we can do with it? 'that impressed me. Their priorities were the same as mine. "
"Can not Get Enough" is an album "homegrown". tested during shooting Cherry some of the songs live and got promising responses. "In a set presenting new songs, the intensity of the show increases," he notes. "When I wrote these songs - most were with" Go Simmer Down "the case -. I felt literally how come the public and would go off right when we actually played it in front of people, I was not disappointed."
Cherry acknowledges happy that he owes the quasi, built 'devotion Swedish musician and their very own approach to pop music a lot. "My father has toured and worked for a long time before I was born with musicians from Sweden," says the Swedish-American inventor song. "Then made bands like Abba or Roxette attention to itself. Swedish musicians have a great work ethic and a strong sense of pop and simplicity. In addition, Sweden feel with the English language very well ... But the fact that it in turn also not their native language, gives them a certain naivety, which is perfect for pop songwriting. "
Swedish was Eagle-Eyes first language, and although he speaks fluent English, his lyrics benefit from a kind-heartedness of the outsider ', by highlighting contradictions and ask questions that are as insignificant as elementary. "I am the eternal outsider," he says mischievously. "If I'm in the States, I feel half swedish - when I'm in Sweden, I feel half-American."
And even as Cherry finishing touches to the completion "Can not Get Enough" docked, celebrated he and his girlfriend the arrival of their first child Daisy - another good sign from the cycle of loss, confusion and renewal. The album "Can not Get Enough" will be released on 05.10.2012
