This will be a very lovely thing indeed. My ultimate music heroine Róisín Murphy has prepared something rather special for all of her fans. "Mi Senti" is an all Italian 6-Track EP coming up on May 28th via The Vinyl Factory. A culmination of the ex-Moloko vocalist’s long-running fascination with Italian culture, "Mi Senti" hears Róisín cover five classic Italian pop hits (by Mina, Patty Pravo, Lucio Battisti and Gino Paoli) alongside an original composition "In Sintesi", seven years since her last solo album Overpowered. The first taster of this extraordinary project is a sensual and emotional rendition of  Lucio Battisti's 1976 hit "Ancora Tu". The song feels like a completely new sonic territory for this ever so versatile Irish diva. You can order your copy of the very special, limited edition gatefold double white vinyl version of "Mi Senti" (limited to only 1000 numbered copies worldwide) HERE. I hope my copy is one of the very first 500 of them which will supposedly be signed by La Murphy herself. In the meantime enjoy this truly magnificent musical treat...
