Listen to Róisín Murphy "You Know Me Better" Remixes
Finally. The wait is almost over.
EMI will release Róisín Murphy's new single "You Know Me Better" across Europe on March 31. The maxi single disc will include remixes from Guy Williams and Toddla T. And check out that amazing new single artwork above. Stunning. Click here for exclusive behind-the-scenes footage from the photoshoot.
The new Toddla T remix is my favorite of the two because it pushes the original track into a completely, unexpected direction. The Sheffield street-savvy soundboard wizard keeps Róisín vocals intact but stripped them entirely from Andy Cato's production. He replaces the catchy disco arrangement with an electro-driven hip hop and dancehall vibe that is that is somewhat reminiscent of Diplo's signature Baltimore shuffle. It's a very cool remix that truly offers up something new and different. (Thanks to the excellent Roisin Murphy fan blog for the heads up about these new remixes.)
This cover has caused quite a few conversations hasn't it! Thanks Arjan for the remixes...listening to them now and loving them. Can't wait for this single to come out - it's BY FAR my fave from 'Overpowered'.

Simple yet stunning cover. My most favourite song from "Overpowered" as well. It ties with "Primitive" for me.

By far, the best song off the album. I love the look on her face in this photo.
I like the cover for "Let Me Know" better though. The kids in that photo add so much more than the frumpy bird to her right.
