Róisín Murphy announces new album ‘Hit Parade

The news comes alongside new single ‘The Universe’.

Róisín Murphy has announced details of her new album: ‘Hit Parade’ will be released on 8th September via Ninja Tune Records.

Murphy has also offered up the album’s new single, ‘The Universe’. Watch the video below.

Speaking about the album, Murphy has said: “This record is a collaboration with DJ Koze. We worked remotely, in different countries sending tracks/ideas back and forth for several years. I always have to approach a new collaboration with openness and a willingness to learn and never more so than with this.”

“It’s a joyful record, I’ve never been happier, that is partly down to personal reasons but also in my work I’ve been very fulfilled. For me the record is about love and sensuality but also it’s about music itself and how it’s always been there for me. There are tinges of darkness, of the abyss, as well as all the joy. There’s contemplation of mortality which is meant to serve as reminder to me (and perhaps you the listener) to really live while we can.”

‘Hit Parade’ will be the Irish musician’s sixth studio album and first since 2020’s ‘Róisín Machine’. She had previously released the single ‘CooCool’ in March.

Murphy is set to play a range of festivals this summer, including Melt in Berlin, Bilbao BBK Live, Bluedot near Manchester and Oya Festival in Oslo.
