Goldfrapp, the British duo of Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory, released a new album, Silver Eye, back in March 2017 via Mute. Now Goldfrapp have announced a deluxe edition of the album and 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. Silver Eye: Deluxe Edition is due out July 6 via Mute. Check out the new version of "Ocean" below, followed by the deluxe edition's tracklist and cover art, as well as the band's upcoming tour dates.

The band 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.
