No one saw this eye-opening move coming!

Straight after releasing her new “Exploitation” single last month, Roisin Murphy has now unveiled the tune’s official video today (April 13). The clip is artistic and almost surreal, as it shows the artist posing in various frames while shots of her downfall are interwoven throughout.

The Irish singer also directed the video, stating:

“As a grown up in this industry and someone who has always had a huge involvement in the visual side, it felt like it was time I took complete control of my image. I had a crystal clear vision for this video, after all I’ve had 8 years of collecting references and inspiration building up to it. It’s the story of an actress and a love affair. It’s about selling out, manipulation and exploitation within creative work and in a relationship. It’s ironic because as my own director I’m exploiting myself (if that’s possible) but I am manipulating you.”

“Exploitation” follows Murphy’s “Gone Fishing” single off her upcoming LP Hairless Toys (out May 11). Click here to pre-order the album now!
