Speaking about the new track, Murphy said in a press release: “Ostensibly a fragile little flower yet it has great hidden strength at the roots. There’s classic virtuosity and a lightness of touch, while DJ Koze’s hyper-modern production makes it bounce and glide. It’s a stupidly romantic little love poem. ‘This thing is way beyond any kind of parody’. Everything in this song is true and playful. Can we fall in love and retain our sense of humour? ‘Embrace your inner child!’ Timeless, ageless, unavoidable love.”
‘CooCool’ marks Murphy’s first new music since 2021, when she released Crooked Machine, a remix edition of her 2020 record Róisín Machine.
