| Described by Alison Goldfrapp as “sulky, sexual and a bit ambiguous”, ‘Ooh La La’ is a thrilling slab of glam-noir. Vibrant and visceral, the track is pure excitement and tension, delivered with the downright dirty insouciance that we have come to expect of Britain’s most captivating act. |
Co-written and co-produced by Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory, ‘Ooh La La’ comes accompanied by an appropriately electrifying glam fantasy video courtesy of uber-director Dawn Shadforth that Alison describes as ‘harking back to Eno era Roxy Music and old Top of the Pops’.
‘Ooh La La’ comes with additional mixes care of uber cool German electro-house team Tiefschwarz, Benny Benassi (of ‘Satisfaction’ fame) and Phones (aka Paul Epworth, producer of Bloc Party and Futureheads).
‘Supernature’ follows their Mercury Prize nominated debut release ‘ Felt Mountain’ in 2000 and 2003’s ‘Black Cherry’. “We’ve made an electronic, glam cross between Berlin, New York and north-east Somerset” explains Alison. The new album is the sound of Goldfrapp breaking through their own crash barrier - a strident, psychedelic, 100% uncompromising creative force at the top of their very own game.
Following on from their show stopping performance at Glastonbury last summer Goldfrapp will also be bringing back their visually astounding live show when they tour this Autumn.
