Goldfrapp release their seventh studio album, the first for 4 years - ‘Silver Eye’ on March 31st through Mute. Watch new video for their latest single ‘Anymore’ here:
Alison led the creative for all of the visuals on the album and played a crucial role in the direction of the video; “The 'Anymore' video was shot on the strange & beautiful island of Fuerteventura. I love the volcanic rock and dunes which were also the setting for the still images I took.” Featuring strident strands of underground electronica, sensual melody and metal machine pop at its core, the new track is an assertive return from the uncompromising duo.
On the new album Alison and Will spent 10 days in Dallas with John Congleton, Grammy-winning producer of St. Vincent, John Grant and Wild Beasts while in London they teamed up with electronic composer Bobby Krlic, aka The Haxan Cloak and Brian Eno collaborator Leo Abrahams added abstract guitar textures. The album was mixed by David Wrench (The xx, fka Twigs, Caribou).
On the making the album, Alison Goldfrapp said: “We’ve never liked repeating ourselves. Often we react to things we’ve just done. We like the spontaneity of not knowing. It’s only through the process that we start to figure out what it is. The fans who have stuck with us are the ones who embrace that idea and are excited by the thought that they don’t know quite what to expect next.”
Will Gregory added: “I think writing an album is like being lost in a wood. You’re trying to figure out an interesting path. You don’t know whether it’s going to be a dead end or somewhere interesting and you never know when to stop because around the corner some beautiful vista might open up.”
