Roisin Murphy has revealed some of the details for her upcoming third studio album.

The Arklow-born singer's follow-up to her 2007 release Overpowered is called Hairless Toys and will be released on May 11.

The album consists of eight tracks which were chosen from 30 that she recorded with Eddie Stevens.

Murphy, former front woman of Moloko, said of the record: "To select just eight songs from the vast batch written last year required some pretty vigorous editing. 

"The record could have been much longer but this seemed like just the right combination, and in fact the sequencing fell into place with more ease than any other album I've made."

The tracklisting for Hairless Toys is: 
Gone Fishing
Evil Eyes
Uninvited Guest
House Of Glass
Hairless Toys (Gotta Hurt)
