After You Know Me Better failed to make the UK top 40, Roisin has spoken to the Daily Star newspaper about the importance of chart success:
ROISIN Murphy is bowing to commercial pressure to draw more listeners in to ace her slinky dance record, Overpowered.
Radio has been slow to champion the 34-year-old’s tunes – which baffles me.
Uncomplaining Roisin told me: “The charts are important to me and I think it will happen as more people are finding the record.
“The next single Movie Star is the most radio-friendly I’ve made – so fingers crossed.
“I’ve been doing this a long time and don’t feel I’m one of the new wave of female singer-songwriters.
“In fact, I don’t even feel like I’m a bird when I’m writing.
“If it came to writing ‘girls’ music’ – I’d be stumped.”
