Kieran Hebden turns in a soft, glowing house interpretation of 'Dream Baby Dream'

As we've previously reported, Neneh Cherry and free jazz beasts The Thing are set to release a collaborative album, The Cherry Thing, on 18th June. It's an intriguing and successful hook-up, featuring covers of everyone from Ornette Coleman and Don Cherry to MF DOOM.

In advance of the album's release Kieran Hebden, aka Four Tet, has remixed 'Dream Baby Dream' into a warm, jazzy house stomp. It builds to a total freakout about two-thirds of the way through, in keeping with the volatile nature of his source material. Listen below, and for more on the album read our in depth interview with Ms. Cherry herself here.
