Roisin's charity cover
Ex-Moloko singer teams up with Sinead O'Connor for a re-work of I'm Every Woman16 July 2009 - Roisin Murphy has teamed up with Sinead O'Connor, Micachu, thecocknbullkid and Alessi's Ark for a charity cover.
The former Moloko singer has helped re-work Chaka Khan's 1978 hit I'm Every Woman for the women's charity Action Aid.
"It's a bit of a depressing version of the song, it's more haunting and soulful but I think it represents what it's about really well," she said.
The track was produced by Ivor Novello winner (and President of Epic Records) Amanda Ghost and campaigner for women's rights in poor countries.
Murphy became involved in the project in between recording the follow up to her 2007 album Overpowered.

The singer told 6 Music that she is some way into recording her third album.
"It is quite gritty, it has a slightly London sound to it, it's a bit more urban and bass-ey than Overpowered," she explained.
As a taster to the new record, the singer is set to release new single Demon Lover before the end of the summer.
"I've got a big funky house track ready to go," she said. "It's a souped-up full on garage tune."
Roisin also revealed that she has written a song for Sophie Ellis-Bextor which could feature on her forthcoming album.
"It's a track called Off And On," she said. "It sounds great actually it's much better than my version.
"Mine wasn't really me, it was too poppy and I didn’t feel comfortable with it."
