Musical pioneers Goldfrapp announce their brand new single ‘Rocket’ to be released through Mute March 9th 2010. Fizzy with inspiration, ‘Rocket’ is a goose-bump brilliant tune and is taken from the duo’s fifth album ‘Head First’, released on March
‘Rocket’ ‘is written and produced by band mates Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory and comes complete with new mixes by Richard X, Penguin Prison and Grum, and Tiësto, and is accompanied by a fabulous video directed by Kim Gehrig (Calvin Harris, Primal Scream, Santogold).
Meanwhile ‘Head First’ is Goldfrapp’s most powerful trip to date, a speedy rush of synth optimism, euphoria, fantasy and romance. With life affirming lyrics and stellar production it lifts off at full tilt and takes us on a journey to the heart of 2010.
The diversity, ambition and direction of the new album highlights Goldfrapp as true agenda-setters and modern musical icons. ‘Head First’ follows the critically acclaimed ‘Seventh Tree’, and is the latest in a brilliantly consistent body of work – from the captivating electronic balladry of Mercury nominated debut ‘Felt Mountain’ and its distorted-dancefloor follow-up, ‘Black Cherry’ to the glitterball glamour of ‘Supernature’ which came out in summer 2005 and went on to sell over a million copies worldwide.
