Goldfrapp Announce ‘Tales Of Us’ Album, Preview Several New Songs

793f65ee990e307dbdb59f80bb8aa576 Goldfrapp Announce ‘Tales Of Us’ Album, Preview Several New Songs

Let’s get one thing out of the way: my own feelings aside on Goldfrapp‘s last album, 2010′s Head First (I loved it), Alison Goldfrapp herself is not fond of the record. Last year, during an interview for Idolator, she said to me, “For me, if I’m being completely myself, I didn’t like the last album very much. I’m not very proud of that one. I think there are some good tunes on there. I feel like we should have given them to someone else instead of us releasing them as Goldfrapp.”

So enter new album Tales Of Us, which was just announced this morning. The duo have a September 9 release date set for the 10-track LP, and a few songs off it can be previewed via a black and white trailer — which you can watch below!

During our chat last year, Alison was in the midst of recording the pair’s new album. And while she didn’t give too much away at the time, she did note the following:

“I’ve been reading a lot and watching lots of films. Like I said, I feel like the aesthetic of Felt Mountain and Seventh Tree is a sound and vision that feels very relevant to me. I would like to expand on that… I think we’ll always play with acoustic sounds and the synth sounds. Even on Felt Mountain, we had these lush string sounds, but we also had lots of cranky old synthesizers. And that’s still very much there now. We’re just going to be expanding on that territory, I feel.”

In other words, expect less bouncy synth-pop, a la “Rocket” and “Believer,” and more of a mellow, pensive Goldfrapp (if said trailer is anything to go by) this time around.

As far as taking the show on the road, so far a lineup of European tour dates through the fall has been announced. Below is the album’s name-filled tracklist.

Tales Of Us
1. Jo
2. Annabel
3. Drew
4. Ulla
5. Alvar
6. Thea
7. Simone
8. Stranger
9. Laurel
10. Clay
