Demon Lover - YILA remix

This may have escaped the attention of many at the time, but in 2010 this remix of Roisin's (yet to be released) song Demon Lover was put online by YILA. It features the London rapper Wiley.


Pensiero Stupendo teaser

Roisin has posted a teaser of Pensiero Stupendo, one of the songs from her Italian music project Mi Senti. She produced the project, which will be out in May, with her partner Brigante.


Roisin's musical plans

Roisin has spoken about her future musical plans in a interview with Rory Hall:

"I have been incredibly productive of late actually. I've got a finished project which is called (...) Mi Senti, an Italian language project, where I sing in Italian. That will come out in May. And I'm working on an album, a Roisin Murphy album, which is going really well. I've got a single coming out on Eskimo records soon called Leviathan, which is a collaboration with Freeform Five. I'm doing another house music EP. I've been lazy for a long time, I've had two children, but it's all starting to converge at one time, it's like buses."

The meaning of Leviathan

"Leviathan is mentioned in Daniel Robinson's ‘Great Ideas of Philosophy,’ an audio recording of several lectures. In that context, I took the word to mean the overarching system of ideas, morals, rules of governance and the constraints and freedoms of any society at any giving time in history. The vast machine that is built with the sole intention of keeping us from anarchy and to halt the break down of said societies' version of humanity."

Roisin explaining the meaning of Leviathan to Billboard. You can read the full interview here.


It's been a long wait but at last we can listen to Leviathan, Roisin's collaboration with Freeform Five.

The song - plus a bunch of remixes - will be released this Monday.
