Music show: 1990s star Eagle-Eye Cherry returns with ‘Back On Track’
Eagle-Eye Cherry shot to fame in the late 1990s with his debut album “Desireless”, which featured the planetary hit “Save Tonight”. The Swedish American alternative rock singer-songwriter is back with a new album “Back on Track” out on January 27. He tells FRANCE 24 how coming from a musical family – his father was jazz trumpet player Don Cherry, his half-sister is hip-hop singer Neneh Cherry – helped him recognise the moment he hit fame with “Save Tonight” as a rare thing.
After nearly calling it quits, Eagle-Eye Cherry returned with an album in 2018. The star had been hoping to continue that momentum with another album, but the Covid-19 pandemic ground everything to a halt. He tells us he is happy to finally be “Back On Track”.
