°•° Goldfrapp — Silver Eye — (2xCD Deluxe Edition) + Postcard Set
°•° Goldfrapp released ‘Silver Eye: Deluxe Edition’ on Mute on 6th July 2018.
°•° The set includes a re~recording of the original album’s track ‘Ocean’, now performed as a duet with Dave Gahan from Depeche Mode.
°•° ‘Silver Eye: Deluxe Edition’ is a two~disc set featuring new artwork and a bonus disc of remixes and alternate versions, including a previously unreleased remix of ‘Anymore’ from the band’s Will Gregory.
°•° Goldfrapp follow up 2013’s album ‘Tales of Us’ with the deep, dark and electronic musical palette of ‘Silver Eye’, their brand new studio album, made with an eclectic collection of new collaborators. Alison and Will spent 10 days in Dallas with John Congleton, GRAMMY®~winning producer of St. Vincent, John Grant and Wild Beasts. In London they teamed up with electronic composer Bobby Krlic, aka The Haxan Cloak. Brian Eno collaborator Leo Abrahams added abstract guitar textures. The album was mixed by David Wrench (The xx, fka Twigs, Caribou).
On the making the album, Alison Goldfrapp said:
°•° “We’ve never liked repeating ourselves. Often we react to things we’ve just done. We like the spontaneity of not knowing. It’s only through the process that we start to figure out what it is. The fans who have stuck with us are the ones who embrace that idea and are excited by the thought that they don’t know quite what to expect next.”
Will Gregory added:
°•° “I think writing an album is like being lost in a wood. You’re trying to figure out an interesting path. You don’t know whether it’s going to be a dead end or somewhere interesting and you never know when to stop because around the corner some beautiful vista might open up.”
°•° Alison headed to Fuerteventura, a volcanic island in the Canary Islands, to produce the remarkable visuals for the record, all of which were devised and shot by her. The black sands, stark cliffs, rolling dunes and blazing blue skies, captured in her own photographs, are a total complement to the elemental drama of the music on the album. Working with stunning twins who she spotted on the street in London, Alison created and shot 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 in the past including shooting Laura Mvula live at Somerset House.
°•° Mute announces a special deluxe edition of Silver Eye, Goldfrapp’s acclaimed seventh album from 2017. If 2013’s Tales of Us, a set of noirish folk fables, roamed the same pastoral landscape as Felt Mountain and Seventh Tree, then Silver Eye (a reference to the moon) belongs to the pulsing, electronic lineage of Black Cherry and Supernature only deeper and darker. The common thread between these two modes, apart from the consistently exquisite arrangements and Alison Goldfrapp’s extraordinary voice, is a set of enduring preoccupations, which inform both the lyrics and the visual aesthetic. “Mysticism, ecstasy, ritual, contemplation, metamorphosis, the elemental,” says Goldfrapp, who took all of the photographs and creatively directed all artwork visuals. “I’ve realised that there are things I feel passionate about on a deep level and they’re in this record.” On Silver Eye, for the first time, Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory sought new collaborators as the songs were taking shape. They spent 10 days in Dallas with John Congleton, GRAMMY®~winning producer of St. Vincent, John Grant and Wild Beasts. In London, they teamed up with electronic composer Bobby Krlic, aka The Haxan Cloak. Alison Goldfrapp describes Goldfrapp’s music~making as “a constant quest. I don’t think you ever feel like you’ve achieved everything, it’s impossible. You’re always searching, trying to attain some kind of utopia in what you do.” With Silver Eye, that search has taken them to yet another new place, one that’s full of mystery, menace and transcendent beauty. Goldfrapp’s quest continues. Featuring the original album plus remixes of such classic tracks as “Anymore” and “Systemagic” alongside two previously unreleased tracks (including a newly recorded version of “Ocean”), Silver Eye: Deluxe Edition will be released July 6, 2018 as a 2CD set and digitally via Mute.
