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. Recently, we shared with you a sneak peak of what’s to come, with the debut of the first film Drew:
Lush, decadent, mysterious and seductive this short film serves as a living, breathing playground that we are happy to be invited to.
A sumptuous body of work, Tales Of Us has been two years in the crafting and is Goldfrapp’s 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.
Tales Of Us will be available from 9 September 2013 on CD, vinyl, digital and a special limited edition boxset that will feature bonus audio and video content and a photographic hardback book compiled by Goldfrapp, further details to follow.
Meanwhile, a brand-new Goldfrapp website – www.goldfrapp.com – has launched with exciting interactive plans to be revealed soon.
