Goldfrapp New Album 'Tales Of Us' Released 9th September 2013

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. Critical acclaim for the album is building with Mojo and Q both giving it 4* reviews.
 
Goldfrapp have recently undertaken a series of very special live performances with two shows at the Manchester International Festival where they performed Tales Of Us live for the very first time, accompanied by the Royal Northern College of Music string orchestra. The Guardian said of the performance 'Goldfrapp turned up the heat with a hushed masterclass. Goldfrapp has surely never sung better. All the new songs are weightless, ethereal affairs with intriguing themes.'
 
The band then performed at Somerset House before going on to headline the Lovebox main stage in a show that the Evening Standard called 'thrilling'. The summer shows were a precursor to a European headline tour in October and November.
