I was talking about that single called Glam that everyone was talking about for the past 2 months.
Glam is going to be from the soundtrack to "Burlesque" her movie with Cher...so I would highly doubt that would be the lead single off her album since that movie doesn't come out till next year sometime
woops I was wrong...the song i'm talking about is called "Spotlight"...which for some reason I cannot find in my Itunes anymore!
I still can't believe this cover, I'm glad she thought out of the box with this one.
I like the cover, but i just wish the cyborg side of her face looked more realistic instead of cartoonish (drawn).
I've heard the 18 secs of the single...i'm soooo disappointed. I thought she was gonna blow LadyG outta the water right out the gate! Ain't gon' sink no battle ships with that one! I smell a second single b4 release and/or album pushback...
Alison Goldfrapp on Working With Christina Aguilera
Alison Goldfrapp — front woman of the eponymous electronic-pop outfit — thought it was time for a change. After a long career of atmospheric albums like Felt Mountain and Seventh Tree, her latest release, Head First, takes a decidedly less abstract shape. Along with her bandmate Will Gregory, Goldfrapp merges tangible pop sensibilities with the band’s ethereal signatures. According to Goldfrapp, this musical about-face wasn’t nearly as challenging as sitting down to write lyrics for Christina Aguilera’s highly anticipated Bionic. We spoke to her about the creative process and working with a pop diva.
It seems like you’ve been experimenting a lot within pop — apart from Head First, you’ve also been working with Christina Aguilera on Bionic. What’s different about that?
Everything, really. Because I’m not singing it, I’m not putting my heart and soul in it. When you’re singing on the record, feelings are a very physical thing, an emotional thing. It’s very personal. It’s your voice, I guess. You put that out of the equation and that makes a huge difference. Everything about it is completely different.
It’s hard to be invested.
It’s a bit like when you’re writing music for movies or something. It’s that you’re kind of giving them a flavor, saying, “Here, what do you think about this?”
How intense was that collaboration?
We wrote her songs last year and went to her studio for four days. Together, we wrote some lyrics, and she sang some of the stuff. We haven’t heard anything since. We know nothing, like whether it got finished by other producers or not. We don’t know anything.
I'm not loving the new single at all. I hope it grows on me. Its a little bland.
Yeahh, i was trying to figure out what it was that i wasn't crazy about, and you sealed it for me. I'm usually nuts about her music but its a just too bland for me. Sometimes people over do it with the bells and whistles on a track but not this one. BUUUT....i think its just the part of the song. Its too short for me to judge.
