GOLDFRAPP BRAND NEW ALBUM:  “SEVENTH TREE”
RELEASED ON MUTE  FEBRUARY 26th 2008

Genre-busting pop pioneers GOLDFRAPP release their fourth album, ‘Seventh Tree’ through Mute on February 26th 2008.  ‘Seventh Tree’ is written and produced by Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory and was recorded at their own studio deep in the English countryside.

‘Seventh Tree’ follows up the critically acclaimed ‘Supernature’ album, released in March 2005. Supernature went platinum in the UK and went on to sell over a million copies worldwide. From the captivating electronic balladry of Mercury nominated debut ‘Felt  Mountain’ and its dancefloor-burlesque follow-up, ‘Black Cherry’,  Goldfrapp have consistently surprised and delighted with each new  album, adeptly bodyswerving both stereotypes and imitators alike.

If ‘Supernature’ was airbrushed in bold strokes of glitterball glamour, ‘Seventh Tree’ is its sensual counterpoint.  Where its predecessor came cocooned in style and sex, ‘Seventh Tree’ emerges gilded in the butterfly colours of an English surrealism shared from Lear to Lennon. It shimmers and shines with the warmth of a hazy summer, an electric whirlpool of sound over which Alison’s glistening voice soars.
Goldfrapp are widely acknowledged as modern musical treasures – amongst their most creative and imaginative contemporaries they present albums, live shows and imagery in a self-created, ambitious and consistently uncompromising way.  Alison Goldfrapp has become a modern-day icon, providing musical and visual inspiration for countless other artists.

Goldfrapp also have a very real beating heart –and it is this rhythm that reverberates throughout the new set of powerful songs on ‘Seventh Tree’.
