Goldfrapp release 'Train', a brand new single on Mute on the 14th of April.
A magical blend of their trademark otherworldly glamour and driving basslines 'Train' is the first single to be lifted from the forthcoming album Black Cherry, the eagerly awaited follow up to their half-million selling debut, Felt Mountain. If the sensual world of debut album Felt Mountain was infused with the scent of dark fantasy and imaginary landscapes, their new album Black Cherry adds the sounds and energy of the city, the whirl of fairgrounds and the rush of desire. Written and recorded over the last 12 months by the Goldfrapp duo of Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory, Black Cherry features 10 new tracks and is due for release on the 28th of April.
Released on CD and 12" vinyl, 'Train' comes backed with ace mixes by T. Raumschmiere, Ewan Pearson and Goldfrapp. CD copies will also feature an exclusive new bonus track, 'Big Black Cloud, Little White Lie' and the stunning video for 'Train', directed by Dawn Shadforth - best know for her work with Primal Scream, Sugababes and Kylie Minogue
