Mamma's back to work

It's only been a week since she's given birth to her first child, but Roisin is already focussing on her music and making sure we don't forget our dance moves.

From Facebook:

Róisín Murphy got a good nights sleep! Today I felt ready to listen to the remixes of Mamma's Place. Lots of good ones! Now I can stay home and feed and change and stare at Clodagh safe in the knowledge you guys have something to dance to! Rxx


Mamma speaks!

An update from the new mother herself from Twitter:

Having a magical family time in Ireland. My mother has been a god send. Clodagh and her Grandma share a special bond.


It's a girl!

At 3.20 AM yesterday Roisin gave birth to a healthy baby girl that goes by the name of Clodagh Henwood. The little one weighs 8lbs 4oz.

Congratulations to Roisin & Simon on this joyous news!

Crookers album tracklisting

The official tracklisting for the Crookers' album Tons Of Friends has been revealed and it features no less than two Roisin collaborations:

6. Hold Up Your Hand - Crookers Feat. Roisin Murphy
11. Royal T - Crookers Feat. Roisin Murphy

The album is out on the 8th of March next year! Can't wait.


Imelda Marcos & remixes

As I reported earlier this year, Roisin is set to feature on a concept album based on the life of former first lady of the Philippines Imelda Marcos. The album is produced by David Byrne and Norman Cook, aka Fat Boy Slim.

It has now been confirmed that the title of the track that features Roisin is Don’t You Agree? The album will be released on February 23rd 2010 via Nonesuch Records and comes packaged with 100-page book detailing the project and a DVD.

In the meantime, Roisin has stated on Facebook that she is currently in the process of picking remixes of her next single Momma's Place.


Baby & single update

A little update from Murphy land: Roisin is currently still expecting her first child. Her next single Momma's Place will see the light of day in January 2010.
