Tales Of Us is Goldfrapp's sixth album, written and produced by band members Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory and recorded at their studio in the English countryside.
A sumptuous body of work, Tales Of Us has been two years in the crafting and is their most narrative, cinematic and intimate recording so far. Nothing in their accomplished back catalogue has hinted at the new lyrical breadth that the band have introduced to Tales Of Us. All the songs bar one are named in the first person with a cast list of evocative character sketches, the contrary love affairs, the suspense, hallucinations, fairy tales and modern folklores documented and the traces of redemption they find in song take the poetry of Goldfrapp's delicately considered music somewhere brand new.
