Salford this weekend

This weekend Roisin will also be one of the performers at the Un-Convention event in Salford. It's not quite clear what exactly she will be doing, but possibly a multimedia DJ set.

"The goal of Un-Convention is to bring together like minded individuals to discuss the future of independent music," as their website states.

*Update: it will indeed be a DJ set

Demon Lover update

Roisin spoke to The Independent about her upcoming release of Demon Lover (when?) and her wish to work with Daft Punk:

* For her next trick, Irish pop's proto-Gaga Roisin Murphy has been in the studio working on an "epic track" with a coterie of UK hip-hop artists. "Demon Lover", she told me cheerfully at Somerset House during London Fashion Week, is "a bit of an all-star event, with lots of British talent like Wiley and Kano". But the singer, 37 (best known as the former frontwoman of Moloko), explained that the band at the top of her wish list of collaborators had proven elusive so far. "I never normally say who I'd collaborate with, but the truth is – and it may never happen – it would be a dream come true to work with [art-house electro outfit] Daft Punk. How do you track them down, though? I mean, they live in a subway in Paris or something." Murphy will next be able to catch the perennially helmeted Parisians appearing briefly in December's sci-fi sequel Tron: Legacy, for which they've composed the soundtrack.

Run NYC pictures

Two nights ago Roisin was at Aqua Kyoto in London to celebrate the launch of Foot Locker's RUN NYC collection.


Naomi 25 years

Last night Roisin attended a party celebrating Naomi Campbell's 25 year career as a top model.

The party was hosted by Dolce & Gabbana in London.

Kylie glamour

Kylie Minogue has tweeted Roisin on her recent Twitter picture saying: 'Lady, you STILL give glamour!'

How could we possibly disagree with Miss Minogue? Speaking of her, I am totally hooked on Change Your Mind, an unreleased song from the Aphrodite album sessions.



I just found this rare picture of Roisin by Alexis Maryon on a new & pretty Tumblr blog.

The blog is dedicated entirely to Mickey Murphy's Daughter, a.k.a. Roisin Murphy. Click here to check it out.

Sorry that I haven't been updating this blog much lately. I've been a bit busy in other areas of my life...

Here are two exclusive pictures of Roisin taken on the 5th of July 2003, her 30th birthday. They were taken by photographer Marko Krunic in Roisin's hotel room in Novi Sad, Serbia. At the time she was touring Europe with Moloko to promote the Statues album.

Thanks to Marko Krunic

Toddla T collaboration

Sheffield DJ Toddla T has revealed to Clash Music that his upcoming debut album will feature a song with Roisin Murphy.

Toddla is currently in the process of mixing the album, which will be released later this year or early 2011. He and Roisin spent some time in the studio together in the summer of 2009, as I reported at the time.

Back in 2008, when he remixed You Know Me Better, Toddla told me what he thinks about working with Roisin:
She lived in Sheffield (my home town) for a while, so even though we might be a musical generation apart, we've both been influenced by Sheffield's unique eclecticism. This connection makes working with her really special for me.
