Goldfrapp reveals the video for their latest single “Anymore,” taken from their seventh studio album Silver Eye, out on March 31st through Mute.
Alison led the creative for all visuals on the album and played a crucial role in the direction of the video for “Anymore.” The surreal and elemental nature of the island along with striking choreography makes for an intriguing and beautiful contrast to the metallic nature of the track.
On making the video Alison said:
“The ‘Anymore’ video was shot on the strange & beautiful island of Fuerteventura. I love the volcanic rock and dunes which were also the setting for the still images I took.”
Goldfrapp also announces two special New York shows at new venue Brooklyn Steel, April 26th and 27th. Tickets are on sale February 17th with exclusive fan pre-sales from Feb 15th, including special ticket/album bundles. Sign up to the mailing list at goldfrapp.com for more details. The duo’s March 27th show at London’s Roundhouse sold out in less than 2 hours.
Goldfrapp follow up 2013’s album Tales of Us with the deep, dark and electronic musical palette of Silver Eye. The new studio album features an eclectic collection of new collaborators including John Congleton (Grammy-winning producer of St. Vincent, John Grant and Wild Beasts), electronic composer Bobby Krlic (aka The Haxan Cloak), and Brian Eno collaborator Leo Abrahams, who added abstract guitar textures. The album was mixed by David Wrench (The xx, FKA Twigs, Caribou).
The volcanic island of Fuerteventura that serves as the backdrop for the “Anymore” video and Alison’s new series of self portraits for this album are a total compliment to the elemental drama of Silver Eye. With its black sands, stark cliffs, rolling dunes and blazing blue skies as a back drop for the stunning twins Alison discovered on the streets of London, Alison has created a set of visuals that are as arresting as they are idiosyncratic. In demand more and more as a photographer, Alison has been commissioned for other projects, including shooting Laura Mvula live at Somerset House.
Silver Eye is out March 31st and available to pre-order HERE.
