Goldfrapp reveal sixth album ‘Tales Of Us’ details & EU Dates

Goldfrapp release their new album ‘Tales Of Us’ through Mute on 9 September 2013. Their sixth album, ‘Tales Of Us’ is written and produced by band members Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory and was recorded at their studio in the English countryside.

 

Tales Of Us’ has been two years in the making and according to their presser “is their most narrative, cinematic and intimate recording so far. Nothing in their accomplished back catalogue has hinted at the new lyrical breadth that the band have introduced to ‘Tales Of Us’. All the songs bar one are named in the first person with a cast list of evocative character sketches, the contrary love affairs, the suspense, hallucinations, fairy tales and modern folklores documented and the traces of redemption they find in song take the poetry of Goldfrapp’s delicately considered music somewhere brand new.”

 

A trailer for the album offering the first chance to get a glimpse of ‘Tales Of Us‘ can be seen at www.goldfrapp.com.

 

 

Goldfrapp kick-start a summer of very special live performances with two shows at the Manchester International Festival on 17 & 18 July when they will be performing ‘Tales Of Us live for the very first time, accompanied by the Royal Northern College of Music string orchestra.
