NEW YORK — Cherokee’s back. After the release of her 1999 debut album “I Love You…Me,” the singer took a break from the recording studio. But now, she’s returned to the music scene with a new record label and a new sound. “My first album was serious, mellow and laid-back,” she says. “The new album is much different — it’s fun and flirtatious.” For more on the singer, see pages 14 and 15.
