Irish dance-pop queen Róisín Murphy makes a welcome return with her stellar new single “Murphy’s Law”, which was produced once again by long time collaborator Richard Barratt, aka DJ Parrot. The pair continue to showcase their Midas touch, following 2019’s much-loved “Incapable” and the string-drenched strut of “Narcissus”. Clocking in at eight minutes, “Murphy’s Law” has a kind of easy-listening disco energy and showcases classic song craft – weirdly for Róisín, there’s nothing weird about it!

In her own words: “‘Murphy’s Law’ is our crack at a straight up, straightforward, no-frills, disco standard. Oh and it’s the story of my life. It’s about the nature of the past, it’s often a difficult thing to outrun but it can also be quite comforting… When is it valuable heritage, and when is it something that’s holding you back? Time and time again I return to Sheffield and my friends there. I go when I need to reconnect to a scene and to music that’s about something! And to feel the belonging.”

The single “Murphy’s Law” is out now. Get it here.

Irish dance-pop queen Róisín Murphy has blessed us with another incredible, self-directed video. For her brand new, string-drenched, hard-driven disco epic “Narcissus”, Murphy channels the mood at the very height of Disco, filtered through the lens of late seventies primetime Italian Television, taking particular inspiration from the Italian ‘Queen of TV’ Rafaella Carrrà. Indeed, over the course of 6 brilliantly eye strobing minutes, Róisín gets the details of the legendary Italian icon just right but gives it her own typically off-kilter spin. A “colourgasm” and “joyfully vulgar” according to Murphy.
