Roisin talks music

Roisin has spoken to Arjan Writes about her upcoming album, which she recorded in London and is currently in the process of being mixed.

Arjan: Let's talk about your new music. Fans are anxious to hear what you have been up to. In an interview with the BBC recently you described the sound as more 'urban'.

Roisin: "It's tricky when you speak about it in that way, because honestly the record is still evolving. I'm still mixing and I have started to finish tracks now. A track like Demon Lover is very, sort of British urban sounding. And then I've done another track called Billionaire, which is more classic Roisin Murphy type of sound. I did that one which Seji who also produced Overpowered. Then there's some kind of old-school electro stuff that I've done. That's more straight-forward house stuff.

There's a lot of different things that I have been doing. I have been really creative. It has been a very creative period for me. It's feeling good, because I'm actually starting to mix. So the tracks are beginning to be finished, glossy and fabulous."

Click here to read the whole of Arjan's fabulous interview, in which Roisin also explains why the misquotations regarding Lady Gaga have bothered her so much.

--------------------
As a result of the Lady Gaga controversy, Roisin also spoke to the music blog Electroqueer. Here's what she thinks about going to London Fashion Week with a big belly:

"Right now I don't feel like a fashion icon. I feel very creative musically at the moment. I'm not being that visual at the moment in my music mode. It's very healthy for me though. If I come out at the end of the day in the studio and I've achieved something then that's good.

I know London Fashion Week is around the corner and I don't QUITE know how I'm going to approach it this season. I am pregnant. And that puts a different spin on my fashion choices. So we'll just have to see how that one works out!"

Hooray! Very happy music is the focus again. The whole fashion thing doesn't matter to me.

I don't get it..she did mention in previous interview that the new album will take more than 1 year to complete and that she will release an EP..and now she says she is finishing the album??maybe she means finishing the EP?

all I know is that I hate perez for trying to make her look anything less than sensational. As well as being the most misogynst, homophobic and downright ignorant blogger, he also has his facts 100% wrong.

honestly! comparing Roisin to Gaga is like comparing art with peanut butter and Roisin ain't Skippy.
