Goldfrapp, the British duo of Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory, released a new album, Silver Eye, back in March 2017 via Mute. On July 6 the band are releasing a deluxe edition of the album and they previously shared one of its bonus tracks, a previously unreleased new version of the album's "Ocean" that is now a duet with Dave Gahan of Depeche Mode (it was one of our Songs of the Week). Now the new version of "Ocean" has a video. Alison Goldfrapp directed the video, filming her parts on Fuerteventura, a volcanic island in the Canary Islands, where the other videos for the album have been shot by her. Gahan was filmed separately in Madrid while on a break from Depeche Mode's massive world tour. Watch the video below, followed by band's upcoming tour dates.

Alison Goldfrapp had this to say about the video in a press release: "I had an amazing time directing Dave in the video for the track and we couldn't be happier with the end result."

The band previously issued this quick statement about the new track: "Working with Dave Gahan on the new version of 'Ocean' has been a real honor for us as a band. We're thrilled to finally share this collaboration with the world."

Silver Eye was the band's first album in four years, since 2013's Tales of Us. John Congleton and The Haxan Cloak both did production work on the album. Goldfrapp and Gregory spent 10 days at the Dallas studio of Congleton, who has also worked with St. Vincent and Wild Beasts, among others. Then The Haxan Cloak (aka Bobby Krlic, who has worked with Björk, among others) worked with the band in London. Leo Abrahams, who has worked with Brian Eno, provided "abstract guitar textures" and David Wrench (The xx, Caribou) mixed the album. Alison Goldfrapp photographed all of the album's artwork, including the press photos, herself on Fuerteventura, a volcanic island in the Canary Islands.
