“Dream Baby Dream” (Four Tet Remix) (Video)

    Back in April, veteran singer Neneh Cherry unveiled the first track from The Cherry Thing, her collaborative album with Scandinavian free jazz trio the Thing. It was a cover of Suicide’s “Dream Baby Dream” that got a lot of people pretty excited. One of those people was British producer Four Tet, and in May, he provided a sumptuous reworking of the cover. Today, on the eve of The Cherry Thing’s release, we get the official visuals for the remix. Directed by Ted Said, the video blends images of flying rubber bands with close up footage of Cherry singing eerily out of sync. Neatly capturing Alan Vega’s sinister tone on the original, around halfway through the clip strands of plastic tape come alive to gag and bind the singer.

    The video for Four Tet’s remix of “Dream Baby Dream” video streams below. The Cherry Thing is released June 19 via Smalltown Supersound and you can read our review here. [Stereogum]
