Róisín Murphy has released the first in a series of eight new tracks set to be released over the summer. ‘All My Dreams’ is one of a number of tracks recorded with producer Maurice Fulton, each of which will arrive in the coming months with videos filmed during a two day residency at The X Store in London.

“All of Maurice’s music has an authentic club music backbone to it, [and] I responded to that visually”, says Murphy of her self-directed videos for the project. “I wanted it to resonate club/rave culture but in its most innocent form. This is really a piece about memory and melancholy for me”.

She continues: “The process has been interesting. To start with I made films using found footage of raves and parties from 20 years ago or more and with that I created advertisements, asking people to come and join me for two days in a warehouse space in central London. I used my social media outlets to get the message across”.

“The response was incredible” she adds, “so many beautiful children came. I get really quite emotional when I think about it. This experience has been epic, I have been immersed in this project for four months now and it’s changed me. I think I just became a filmmaker!”

This is the first piece of plenty of new music to come, she concludes: “I’ve got more projects on the go. I’ve got some new and exciting collaborators on board and I’m hoping an interesting patchwork of ideas and formats will emerge in due time”.

You can also see Murphy live at this year’s Somerset House Summer Sessions on 15 Jul. Watch the video for ‘All My Dreams’ here:
