After a series of enigmatic Instagram posts set across sprawling and craggy sandscapes, Goldfrapp has finally stopped teasing and announced their new album, Silver Eye, due out March 31.
Along with the album announcement, the duo released Silver Eye's first single, "Anymore," a mesmerizing track akin to heavier synth sounds of Supernature.
"We've never liked repeating ourselves," Alison Goldfrapp said in a release. "Often we react to things we've just done. We like the spontaneity of not knowing. It's only through the process that we start to figure out what it is. The fans who have stuck with us are the ones who embrace that idea and are excited by the thought that they don't know quite what to expect next."
And the windswept sand plains, rock-strewn cliffs, and focus on the moon in those visual teasers? That was all Goldfrapp, who art directed Silver Eye--the LP title in reference to the moon, Alison told Pop Justice. "There were a lot of reasons for that," she said, "practical reasons, creative reasons... I thought it would be fun, and that I could feel a little more connected to the whole thing in the way I don't when someone else has taken a photo of me." Listen to "Anymore," below.
