Róisín Murphy has released a video for Something More.

The unique clip comprises a single tracking shot of Murphy performing the song around the grounds of an Italianate villa in Ibiza. Discussing it, she said:

"My Irish friends often jeer me and say "Oh sure you know Murphy is Italian, aren’t you though Murphy Italiano and all?" Well who’s laughing now? I couldn’t be more Italian 70s TV segment, feckin multo Classico! Here I am in splendid isolation, in Sebastiano‘s house. A house that is almost part of nature, a near ruin of postmodernity.

"The pool where Robert Owens learned to swim. Where the amazing track Tomorrow Can Wait was recorded and if I listen to it there I always cry. The house that Baxter Dury moved into with his band to make the seminal HAPPY SOUP. A house of countless parties, after parties and after that parties. The house where I spent month after month lying around pregnant lulled by the song of the cicadas into occasionally recording a song myself, such as Alternate State with Jamie Jones along with a handful more, in the studio there.

"After the lockdown this summer I got to spend a week completely alone there and fell even deeper in love with the place, I'd forgotten how much I need time alone, perhaps that’s the greatest luxury of all and really is "something more?"

The track dropped back in July and will appear on the Irish singer-songwriter's forthcoming LP, 'Róisín Machine', due out on October 2 via Skint/BMG.

Earlier in September, she confirmed a show at London's O2 Academy Brixton on September 19, 2021. Tickets go on general sale at 10am this Friday (September 25).
