View Full Version : New Goldfrapp Album this Spring

I just found out about this and am so excited I couldn't help but share...

Apparently Goldfrapp is coming out with a new album this spring! Idk if anybody else on here's a huge Goldfrapp fan but I adore them... here's the dish

It's been less than two years since Goldfrapp (http://pitchfork.com/artists/1751-goldfrapp/)'s last LP, the psych-folk Seventh Tree (http://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/11128-seventh-tree/). But it's been more than four years since 2005's Supernature (http://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/3506-supernature/), the last Goldfrapp LP that could accurately be described as danceable.
So fans of the British duo's pop side can rejoice: Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory are set to release their fifth album, Head First, on March 22 in the UK and one day later in the U.S. via Mute (http://www.mute.com/).
According to an amusingly over-the-top post on Pop Justice (http://www.popjustice.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=4253&Itemid=206), first single "Rocket"-- due March 8 in the UK and March 9 in the U.S.-- is "an Italo-esque disco record that isn't really an Italo-esque disco record and is just in fact a Goldfrapp record, albeit one which sounds a bit like Van Halen vs Laura Branigan (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laura_Branigan)." Promising.
As previously reported (http://pitchfork.com/news/36536-goldfrapp-to-score-lennon-biopic/), Goldfrapp wrote the score to the film Nowhere Boy, which chronicles the young life of John Lennon. And the duo apparently worked on the forthcoming Christina Aguilera album (http://pitchfork.com/news/33977-christina-aguilera-working-with-goldfrapp-ladytron/), too.

Another fan here:tmb: Wasn't keen on Seventh Tree, my favourite album's Supernature:D Although there are several tracks on the Black Cherry album that I can't stop playing; particularly Crystalline Green and Strict Machine.:jmp:
I hope this new one's got a few songs that rip along like Ooh Laa Laa, then I'll be happy.:D

Goldfrapp is one of my favorite bands so obviously I can't wait for this :tmb: Felt Mountain is definitely their best album. Seventh Tree is also brilliant.
