Time Out interview Róisín MurphyIn electronic, Pop
Set to release her new album ‘Take Her Up To Monto’, Róisín Murphy spoke to Time Out.
The anticipated follow up to last year’s Mercury Prize nominated ‘Hairless Toys,’ the album is released via Play It Again Sam on July 8 and was recorded with Murphy’s longtime collaborator Eddie Stevens during the ‘Hairless Toys’ sessions.
As with ‘Hairless Toys’, Murphy will self-direct all the album’s videos. Speaking to Time Out about the creative process behind the record, Murphy commented:
“The songs on “Take Her Up to Monto” are more extreme: more dynamic or more complex or more pop. I think subconsciously we were slightly afraid of them at first. If they were siblings, “Hairless Toys” would be the nice child and “Take Her Up to Monto” is more of a problem child.”
Róisín Murphy will also take to the stage for a historic concert at London’s Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre on August 15.
