It's been less than two years since Goldfrapp's last LP, the psych-folk Seventh Tree. But it's been more than four years since 2005's Supernature, the last Goldfrapp LP that could accurately be described as danceable.
So fans of the British duo's pop side can rejoice: Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory are set to release their fifth album, Head First, on March 22 in the UK and one day later in the U.S. via Mute.
According to an amusingly over-the-top post on Pop Justice, first single "Rocket"-- due March 8 in the UK and March 9 in the U.S.-- is "an Italo-esque disco record that isn't really an Italo-esque disco record and is just in fact a Goldfrapp record, albeit one which sounds a bit like Van Halen vs Laura Branigan." Promising.
As previously reported, Goldfrapp wrote the score to the film Nowhere Boy, which chronicles the young life of John Lennon. And the duo apparently worked on the forthcoming Christina Aguilera album, too.
