Roisin on chart success

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.”

Call me defeatist but I'm pretty sure that one of the best songs on Overpowered not being in the top 40 has got to be a sign of the end of the world.
