The life of Imelda Marcos

Not only did she work with Groove Armada on their upcoming album, Roisin has also contributed a song to a concept album trailing the life of Imelda Marcos, the widow of former Philippines dictator Ferdinand Marcos.

The album is produced by former Talking Heads frontman David Byrne together with Fatboy Slim, aka Norman Cook. Other artists on the album include Santigold, Alice Russell and Tori Amos.

There is no news about the release date yet, but I will keep you posted.

He's A Tramp

No moving pictures I'm afraid, but here's a rare performance by Roisin of the Peggy Lee song He's A Tramp.

She sang this at Jarvis Cocker's Forest Of No Return festival, back in June 2007.
