Press Info (English):
Goldfrapp release their stunningly beautiful 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.

A sumptuous body of work, ‘Tales Of Us’ has been two years in the crafting and 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 offers the first chance to get a glimpse of ‘Tales Of Us’ and can be seen below.

With its uniquely cinematic narrative, filmmaker Lisa Gunning is creating a compelling and beautiful film to accompany the album, which will be shown in cinemas later this year.

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. The band will then be performing at Somerset House on 20 July before going on to headline the Lovebox main stage on Sunday 21 July.

 

Press Info (German):
Am 6. September 2013 veröffentlichen Goldfrapp ihr jüngstes Album bei Mute. „Tales Of Us”, ist das nunmehr sechste Album der Band und wurde von Alison Goldfrapp und Will Gregory geschrieben und produziert und in ihrem Studio auf dem Land in Westengland aufgenommen.

Ganze zwei Jahre dauerte die Arbeit an diesem geradezu schwelgerischen Werk – es ist das bis dato erzählerischstes, kinematografischstes und intimstes Album von Goldfrapp. Man kann zu Recht behaupten, dass keines ihrer vorhergehenden Alben die wunderschöne lyrische Weite vorwegnahm, die ihr jüngstes Werk besitzt.

Fast ausnahmslos alle Stücke sprechen in der 1. Person; bewegende Charakterbilder und Reflexionen über abseitige Liebesaffairen, Ungewissheiten, Halluzinationen, Märchen und moderne Moritaten, aber auch Momente von Erlösung; geronnen in Songs, in Poesie, die Goldfrapps Musik an einen bislang unbetretenen Ort führen.

Ein Albumtrailer bietet ab sofort die Möglichkeit, sich einen ersten Eindruck zu verschaffen:
die Bilder stammen von Filmemacherin Lisa Gunning, sie sind Teil einer größeren kinematischen Erzählung, die das Album begleiten wird und später in ausgewählten Kinos gezeigt wird.

Goldfrapp beginnen den Sommer mit zwei besonderen Auftritten im Rahmen des Manchester International Festivals am 17. und 18. Juli – dort werden sie „Tales of Us“ gemeinsam mit dem Royal Northern College Of Music String Orchestra aufführen. Daran schließen sich zwei weitere Festivalauftritte an. Das Somerset House am 20. Juli, sowie das Lovebox Festival am 21. Juli.
