It’s been three years since Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory bewitched us with their stylish electronic sound. On September 10, the longtime collaborators will issue their sixth album for Mute entitled Tales of Us.
Penned and produced in their own studio in the English countryside, the 10-song narrative is said to be Goldfrapp’s most intimate and cinematic yet. The tracklisting is comprised of solely of names, which delve into “evocative character sketches, the contrary love affairs, the suspense, hallucinations, fairy tales and modern folklores.” Looks like Ms. Goldfrapp is set to seduce us once more.
She recently revealed on Twitter that the new set will touch upon previous records such as the duo’s 2000 debut, Felt Mountain, and their 2008 Grammy-nominated LP, Seventh Tree. Um, we can get with that.
“If albums F.M & S.T are your sort of thing, i think you might like our new album?! Xxxx”
Also accompanying Tales of Us is a special project from filmmaker Lisa Gunning, who’s worked as an editor on such films as Nowhere Boy, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen and last year’s Seven Psychopaths. It’s slated to hit theaters later this year. For a glimpse, check out the trailer below.
And could the English outfit finally venture back Stateside for some shows? While a string of UK dates will lead up to a proper European tour in October and November, possible concerts on this side of the pond could very well happen. But of course, Alison is playing coy at the moment.
“I’d love to do some shows in U.S….I’ll keep you posted on that x.” she she recently shared.
