The English duo Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory, that form genre-busting pop pioneers Goldfrapp, have just announced the date for their upcoming fifth studio effort “Seventh Tree” on February 26th. Written and produced entirely by the band, in their own studio located deep into the English countryside, ‘Seventh Tree’ follows up the critically acclaimed ‘Supernature’ album, released in March 2005. Supernature went platinum in the UK and went on to sell over a million copies worldwide.
If ‘Supernature’ was airbrushed in bold strokes of glitterball glamor, ‘Seventh Tree’ is its sensual counterpoint. Where its predecessor came cocooned in style and sex, ‘Seventh Tree’ emerges gilded in the butterfly colors of an English surrealism shared from Lear to Lennon. It shimmers and shines with the warmth of a hazy summer, an electric whirlpool of sound over which Alison’s glistening voice soars.
