Goldfrapp reveal the latest in their series of beautiful short films that accompany their brand new album Tales Of Us, which is released on September 10th, 2013.
The film for “Annabel” is available to view now at: www.goldfrapp.com
With its uniquely cinematic narrative, filmmaker Lisa Gunning has created a compelling and beautiful film to accompany the album, which will be shown in cinemas later this year. The film for “Annabel” is a breathtaking preview of what’s to come.
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 star reviews.
Kicking off their album release week, Goldfrapp are thrilled to perform for “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” on Monday, September 9th (12:35 AM EST / 11:35 PM CMT on NBC). This marks the band’s first performance on the Emmy Nominated show and the debut of their new album Tales of Us in North America the night before release. Be sure to tune in!
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.’
On September 10th Goldfrapp will host an album release event of magical proportions, accompanied by the Wordless Music Orchestra. Their sixth studio release, Tales Of Us will be presented in FULL along with catalog favorites for one evening ONLY at the historic Beacon Theatre in New York City. Tickets are on sale here.
The summer shows were a precursor to a European headline tour in October and November.
