performing róisín murphy

Róisín is returning in a big way. “Exploitation” is her first official single from the upcoming album “Hairless Toys” that we were waiting for (too long) eight years. But the wait was wrathful! We were all big fans of Murphy´s a bit quirky and full-arty visual side that she made and used for each of her music releases and this one is not different. Actually it is; the Murphy touch is more than ever present in this video for her foreboding Latin-jazz “flavoured” house single. She also directed it.

Róisín released also a statement on why she made this (really appreciable) step forward: “As a grown up in this industry and someone who has always had a huge involvement in the visual side, it felt like it was time I took complete control of my image. I had a crystal clear vision for this video; after all I've had 8 years of collecting references and inspiration building up to it. ... It's about selling out, manipulation and exploitation within creative work and in a relationship. It's ironic because as my own director I'm exploiting myself (if that's possible) but I am manipulating you.”

Take a look at the behind-the-scenes video below and don´t forget that her album “Hairless Toys” is out May 11.
