It is hours until the release of Róisín Murphy's new Overpowered album and it's time for a blowout post...
First, check out Róisín covering The Gossip (and rockin' awesome hair):
Epic, eh? Thanks also to Lucas for sending me this link to Róisín's appearance on Music Control at 96.4
Ten things wot we learn:
1) Róisín can rock acoustic versions of her new disco tunes with panache.
2) She is well obsessed with The Sopranos
3) "When you get past a certain age you need your own lighting rig."
4) Her album pics were taken on Woolwich High Street
5) She's into Kanye West
6) She says things like "me gob"
7) About the "caf" patrons in the video for Let Me Know: "They know I'm coming and sort of sigh because I 'm gonna break out into song and dance at any minute."
8) She prefers Coronation Street to East Enders.
9) Róisín recorded Let Me Know in "hedonistic" Barcelona. It's about being sick of sadness and just wanting to have a loose sexual relationship. She does a gorgeous acoustic live version of it !
10) Movie Star is about "a girl who's about to get herself into quite a lot of trouble."
Finally, here is Róisín doing Let Me Know on Jonathan Ross. Note the shoulder pads and the milli-second glimpse of Ewan McGregor!
