Róisín Murphy shares the latest preview of her forthcoming album, Hit Parade.

Murphy's latest single, “Fader”, follows “The Universe” and “CooCool”. The release comes accompanied by a self-directed video which is set against the backdrop of Murphy’s hometown of Arklow, County Wicklow.

Of the video, she says: "This idea came to me partly in reaction to making such surreal and ‘other’ imagery for the album artwork, and partly in response to the track itself. I felt I needed a totally authentic space in which to perform Fader. The song is about life & death & music and so I went home to where it all started for me. Just as in the music there’s a huge HipHop influence on the video and for me to have the sheer front for that, it needed to ring true and so my home town, Arklow was in fact, the only option".

"Fader" is out now. Róisín Murphy's forthcoming album, Hit Parade, arrives on 8 September via Ninja Tune, and is available to pre-order now.
