The inimitable and boundary pushing Róisín Murphy announces her highly anticipated forthcoming album, ‘Hit Parade’, produced in collaboration with electronic music virtuoso DJ Koze. The 13-track compendium of genremelding gems is set for release on the 8th September on esteemed record label Ninja Tune and this announcement arrives accompanied by a new single, “The Universe”.
With ‘Hit Parade’, Murphy continues her ever evolving, shape-shifting 30 year career, looking towards the future by joining forces with DJ Koze to conjure blissful music that teems with life and imagination. A hyper-modern record which is a world away from 2020’s critical and commercial success of “Róisín Machine”, it further cements Murphy as a total one of a kind at a creative peak, a constantly inquisitive and restless spirit who is unmatched.
The warm thump of hip-hop, playful psychedelia, and elegant soulful grooves are all part of Murphy and Koze’s vision here, resulting in a record that’s endlessly replayable even as its melodies become glued to your brain. The 13 indelible tracks that contribute to the album’s effortless sparkle were six years in the making.
