Goldfrapp, a lead singer with one of the most haunting voices the music industry has to offer and lets face it the music industry isn't really offering up any real talent these days and what it does, the studio mangles it up to a point where the raw, adventurous nature is all but flat and dead.
Goldfrapp are looking to make their mark once again with a new album and film charting the inspiration behind their new music. Check out the details and trailers below, you can only catch it for one night in selected cinemas and it looks like an experiment worth being part of!
Goldfrapp announce details of a very special Tales Of Us cinema event – a worldwide screening of the stunning film Tales Of Us followed immediately by an exclusive dramatic live performance transmitted into cinemas from the magnificent surroundings of the legendary Air Studios in London. This must-see state-of-the-art experience will be broadcast by Arts Alliance Media across the UK, Europe, North America, Australia and New Zealand on the evening of 4 March 2014.
To register your interest and see more information including locations of screenings and other exciting reveals in the coming weeks visit: www.goldfrapp.com/film and the official Facebook and Twitter #TalesOfUsFilm channels.
Inspired by Goldfrapp’s latest album, Tales Of Us, the striking film is a 30-minute journey through five of the individual stories featured on the album. Stranger, Laurel, Jo, Drew and Annabel interconnect subtly, sharing themes of love, loss, madness and identity, taking the viewer on a unique musical journey.
With only two stories having been seen previously this is an incredible exclusive opportunity to see the film Tales of Us as it was intended, as a complete journey and on the cinematic big screen, available in select locations for one night only.
Cinema audiences will see the Tales Of Us film transition beautifully into a live 50-minute dramatic theatrical performance by Goldfrapp including classic songs and selections from the spellbinding new album.
The Tales Of Us film was co-created by Alison Goldfrapp and director & writer Lisa Gunning (Nowhere Boy, Seven Psychopaths, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen). The marquee creative team behind the live cinematic event includes Executive Producer, Catherine Ugwu, MBE (Executive Producer of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Opening and Closing Ceremonies); critically acclaimed set designer Shona Heath (Dior, Valentino, Prada) who also created the iconic owl that graced Goldfrapp’s Seventh Tree album artwork; and lighting designer Rob Sinclair (Vampire Weekend, Pet Shop Boys).
Says Alison Goldfrapp, “We’re very excited to present a unique event, the Tales Of Us film alongside an intimate live performance, to our fans across the world. We’ve loved touring the Tales Of Us album and can’t wait to bring our live show to local cinemas”.
The Tales Of Us film event precedes a UK tour, starting on 26 March 2014 at the Birmingham Symphony Hall and ending at the Gateshead Sage on 7 April 2014. The tour also includes a performance at the The Lowry in Salford, where Alison Goldfrapp curated her first ever art exhibition.
