Róisín Murphy annonce la sortie de son prochain album "Hairless Toys" en mai prochain en présentant un de ses titres "Gone Fishing", balade electro-pop inspirée du film "Paris Is Burning". Sa voix magnifique et unique qui s'est imposée sur la scène électronique avec sa participation dans le projet Moloko, et avec le producteur Matthew Herbert (le titre sonne d'ailleurs très Herbert) revient 8 ans après la sortie de son album Overpowered.
L'album est déjà disponible en précommande sir iTunes.
"This song was written after I watched the documentary film Paris Is Burning, having read an article which referenced it in a discussion about House music's origins in black, gay culture. I was deeply moved by this film. 'I had to run this far from home' - it's about the outcasts who could never fit into mainstream society and how they created a safe place in the drag 'Ball' scene of New York in the ‘80s. 'Will we live on? The children of La Beija' refers to the 'house' of Pepper La Beija, who was one of the most notable figures on the scene, Pepper is also quoted in Malcolm McLaren's song on the same subject 'Deep In Vogue'. The culture was a flamboyant reaction to persecution and disillusionment, the imagination and bravery of these kids is simply awe-inspiring. I envisioned 'Gone Fishing' almost as a song from a Broadway musical version of this story. The making of one's own world, a safer world and the creation of a new, better family in music or youth culture is a theme I touch upon elsewhere on my album Hairless Toys."
