And she’s back! Róisín Murphy covers classic Italian pop tracks from the 60′s and 70′s for her new EP called “Mi Senti”, her first solo material since 2012′s great single “Simulation” for Permanent Vacation. The release will feature five electronic cover versions of Mina’s “Ancora Ancora Ancora” and “Non Credere”, Patty Pravo’s “Pensiero Stupendo”, Gino Paoli’s “La Gatta”, and Lucio Battisti’s 1976 hit “Ancora Tu”, which you can now stream above. The EP also contains one original song, “In Sintesi”, by Murphy.

In her own words: “In these songs, emotions are at the surface of things and that is what I found again and again when I was researching Italian music and that is what I feel from the language, when I speak it and even without understanding it, I feel close to love, close to the truth about human motivation.”

Róisín Murphy’s “Mi Senti” EP will be released by The Vinyl Factory on May 28th as a limited edition gatefold vinyl. The first 500 copies will be signed by Róisín Murphy. You can pre-order your copy here.

Joakim: “On The Beach”

Great news! French maestro and Tigersushi boss Joakim has a new album on the way and we couldn’t be more excited. Entitled “Tropics Of Love”, the new record comes nearly three years after his last album “Nothing Gold” dropped, and will be released on May 26th via Because Music. Before then, you can now download the album’s first single, “On The Beach”, a superb cover of one of his favorite songs by Neil Young.

In his own words: “When i first heard that song, i felt like i could have or should have written it. The lyrics are so dark and beautiful, they relate to the slightly autistic part that a lot of artists are hiding and the artist condition in general. But I’m no Neil Young when it comes to song-writing, so instead of trying to write something as good, I decided to make a cover, twist that blues tune and turn it into something completely different and (much to my surprise) even darker, to the point where most people don’t even recognize the original song.”

The “On The Beach” EP will drop on March 31 via Because Music, backed with remixes by CFCF, Principles Of Geometry, and Joakim himself.
