Roisin Murphy announces she is working on first new album in eight years

Live dates are also to be confirmed

Roisin Murphy has announced that she is preparing to release a new album.

The singer and record producer revealed the news via Twitter, adding that she is also to play some live dates. Details on where or when the gigs will take place have yet to be confirmed, and Murphy gave no other information on the upcoming LP, which will be her first since the release of ‘Overpowered’ in 2007.

“I’m back. Album coming,” tweeted the former Moloko frontwoman. Murphy also posted a photograph on Instagram of an advertising billboard featuring her name printed on a plain pink background.

The new LP will be the 41-year-old’s third solo record, though she did release the limited edition EP ‘Mi Senti’ in May of last year.
