Goldfrapp Tease New Album “Tales of Us”

It’s a very good day when you wake up to news of new Goldfrapp music! Their new album “Tales of Us” is set for release on September 9th.

We get our first taste of the lovely mellow sounding affair in this beautifully shot trailer, the first in a series of short films that will accompany the album. They will be shown in cinemas later this year. We hope we get to see them in New York!

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?

Late into the night
Comes a glow like ice
Number’s on my phone, I don’t recognize
There in black and white
All your twisted thoughts

Brutal starry eyes
Stuck inside your head
Fallen from the sky
Risen from the dead
Views from all the past
Taken to new heights

Melancholy sky
You made me blue
Still hanging on
There’s nothing I can do
Not this time

There you are again
Calling from the hills
Haunted and the damned
From imagined worlds
It’s too late my friend
I don’t love you anymore

Melancholy sky
You made me blue
Still hanging on
There’s nothing I can do
Melancholy sky
Still hanging on
You’re crazy now
I didn’t do you wrong
Not this time
