Electronic pair set to release Tales Of Us in September, with a European tour to follow

Goldfrapp have announced that they'll be releasing their sixth album Tales Of Us on September 9.

Information on their website tells that the band have "taken a turn for the noir" and are pursuing a more acoustic direction, with Alison Goldfrapp saying: “I'm drawn more and more to the intimacy and simplicity of the voice & guitar.”

She adds: “When you’re relaxed and confident you can excavate places you may not have dared go before [...] I am interested in horror, psychologically. Not blood and guts. That’s too literal. I like the horror of the mind.”

The duo have also released a short teaser trailer - have a watch below:
