Goldfrapp to perform new album at Manchester International Festival

In May of 2011 Goldfrapp started hinting at their sixth studio album, and have been recording slowly in the studio ever since. The duo announced this morning that they’ll be playing the album live with the RNCM string orchestra at the Manchester International Festival on July 16/17. Tickets on sale March 1 here.

The official announcement of their new album comes without a name, or first single news but we can safely assume that the widescreen orchestral sounds of Goldfrapp are here to stay. The album is slated for release in late Summer.

From what we can see, Alison seems to be recording some icy vocals at her studio in the snowy countryside, good news all around.

Are you ready for the new album?
