It's no secret that we love -- no, worship -- Roisin Murphy. The electro-pop songstress with a voice that could make us do the best kind of very bad things and a penchant for the performative (not to mention sex with lobsters) has just released her single, "Orally Fixated," her first new offering since spending two and a half years promoting her last killer album, Overpowered.
The (very pregnant) former lead singer of Moloko is taking a more viral approach to delivering her new music -- "Orally Fixated" is one of three singles slated for release in the coming months -- through video blogs (like the above clip), remix competitions (Ro confesses she's recently become a "vaguely good" DJ), and other surprises. "My fans are so loyal and I am really excited to have them more involved in my creations," says Murphy. The early part of 2010 will be spent adjusting to motherhood, but Roisin promises a slew of new music including a move towards mixing a bit of key note British urban beats and MC's with her infamous pop sensibilities.
You can hear "Orally Fixated" on Roisin's MySpace and Facebook pages and in the coming days a 48 hour global free download of the single will be launched by The Guardian.
