What an inexplicably exhilarating time for all the Róisín Murphy devotees. We are literally only weeks away from the release of the artist's 3rd solo album "Hairless Toys" and now the Irish Empress of the Dancefloors, as I like to call her, teases us even more with the premiere of the first official single "Exploitation". The single edit, which follows "Gone Fishing" and streamed for the first time on Pitchfork earlier on today, promises another epic electronic journey "Simulation" style as the album version will be almost 10 minute long. The wondrously unexpected "Exploitation" delivers one of La Murphy's most memorable, unique and mellifluous solo efforts to date. It's another astonishing, this time sensually half-whispered, vocal performance with productional wizardry right from the musical top shelf, that I can only suspect either Moloko's Eddie Stevens or The Crooked Man to be partially responsible for. No less than a masterpiece in my books already.

To top it all up Róisín Murphy's one-off club single "Jealousy" is out now on 12" via Crosstown Rebels and you can purchase your copy on Juno now! The house mix which debuted on Annie Mac's BBC show the other week is an ultimate stomper and a saturday night worthy anthem.
