Homebrew is the second studio album by Neneh Cherry. The album features several different genres, including between jazz, funk and trip hop. The album photography was by Jean-Baptiste Mondino.

Gang Starr co-wrote and produced "Sassy" and "I Ain't Gone Under Yet." Geoff Barrow wrote and produced "Somedays."

"Trout" features a guitar riff sampled from Steppenwolf's version of "The Pusher",[6] and the drum track by John Bonham from "When The Levee Breaks"."Buddy X" was allegedly inspired by Lenny Kravitz. It was remixed by Notorious B.I.G and the Dream Team. The track "Move With Me" later appeared on the soundtrack of the 1993 film Sliver.
