There’s something always ok in the world when Goldfrapp are in it, and so the news that Mute / BMG have announced the long-awaited vinyl reissue of Goldfrapp’s third album, Supernature – out on 15 May 2020 is very welcome indeed.
The additional news that the new edition of the album will be available on transparent green vinyl, packaged in a gatefold sleeve with an exclusive art print of the original artwork certainly floats our boat.
Originally released in August 2005, Supernature marks the point when Goldfrapp brought their sound to an even wider global audience – the Grammy nominated album debuted at #2 in the UK Albums Chart and the album’s lead single, the pulsing, sophisticated, glam-pop dynamo ‘Ooh La La’, went straight to #4 in the UK Singles Chart. The album generated further hits in the form of ‘Number 1’, ‘Ride a White Horse’ and ‘Fly Me Away’.
Described by The Guardian as “a brash, beautiful celebration of love and dancing”, the album is a colossal, multi-layered, sonic-pop thriller, a radical, confident, bold record that took a joyous step forward from 2003’s Black Cherry.
Goldfrapp are on tour in 2020 celebrating the 20th anniversary of their debut album release. Felt Mountain: The 20th Year Tour will see Alison Goldfrapp perform tracks from the album for the first time since its original release in a brand new show featuring lush and intimate takes on classics from across their 20 year career. A remastered deluxe edition of Felt Mountain will follow in autumn 2020 on Mute / BMG.
“We’ll be touring the UK with our band plus a string section for a series of intimate concerts. We haven’t performed many of the ‘Felt Mountain’ tracks since the original release, so we’re really excited to play this album live, and more, for this significant Goldfrapp anniversary” – Alison Goldfrapp
