Goldfrapp has announced their sixth studio album, Tales Of Us , will be released on September 10th, 2013. All the songs except for one are named in the first person, as the band describes, “with a cast list of evocative character sketches, the contrary love affairs, the suspense, hallucinations, fairy tales and modern folklores”
The English band collaborated with filmmaker Lisa Gunning to create a film to accompany the album, which will be shown in theaters later this year. Goldfrapp will play tracks from the new album at two shows at the Manchester International Festival on July 17th and 18th, accompanied by the Royal Northern College of Music string orchestra. The band will then hit up the Somerset House on July 20th before going on to headline the Lovebox main stage on Sunday July 21st.
