The reinterpretation of her 2020 LP, ‘Róisín Machine’, will arrive digitally on April 30, with a vinyl release following as a Record Store Day exclusive on June 11. It was remixed by producer and longtime collaborator Crooked Man, aka DJ Parrot. Murphy said:
“Parrot doesn’t try to be ‘cool, I reckon that’s the last thing on his mind. He makes music with a real sense of responsibility to the craft. He just cannot make rubbish music, he’d be too ashamed. So everything he is and everything he has learned, is put into everything he does.
“I think ‘Crooked Machine’ is one of his greatest achievements so far. I left him and Fat Dave to their own devices on this and they have outdone themselves! I absolutely love it!! I think I prefer it to the original album, slightly less me and all the more ‘cool’ for it!”

Murphy will play a handful of shows in support of ‘Róisín Machine’ in September, including a date at London’s O2 Academy Brixton. Tickets are on sale now.
