Róisín Murphy has shared her new single 'Narcissus' this morning ahead of a short Australian tour this winter. The new sounds follow the equally-strong 'Incapable' which soundtracked our summer this year.

'Narcissus' is another long one from the inventive artist, coming in at just under eight minutes of strobe-splashed disco elegance. Co-produced and written once again with DJ Parrot aka Crooked Man, this new cut benefits from modern, sinister vocals that bring the seventies-inspired song into the present day. Get dancing this Friday: 

Whispers of "narcissus" add an eerie dark side to the disco scene, combining themes of ancient myth and modern epidemic for a hint of dark underbelly to the hedonism.

On the new infectious bop and its predecessor 'Incapable', Murphy said: “This project was always meant to be about House and Disco...t’s about the moment when the high kicks in, about trying to find the components of euphoria, however counter-intuitive those experiments might be."

Murphy will play a string of live dates at festivals in the UK and abroad this winter:


9 - Manchester, Homoelectric Presents Homobloc


14 - Meredith AUS, Meredith Festival
15 - Melbourne AUS, The Forum
17 - Sydney AUS, Enmore Theatre
