Goldfrapp, the British duo of Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory, are releasing a new album, Silver Eye, on March 31 via Mute. Previously the band shared the album's first single, "Anymore." Now the song has a video. Mary Calderwell directed the clip, which features Alison Goldfrapp and some female dancers with shaved heads in the desert. It was filmed in Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands. Watch it below, via Dazed (who premiered it).

Silver Eye is 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 above press photo, herself on Fuerteventura, a volcanic island in the Canary Islands.

Alison Goldfrapp had this to say about the album in a previous press release: "We've never liked repeating ourselves. Often we react to things we've just done. We like the spontaneity of not knowing. It's only through the process that we start to figure out what it is. The fans who have stuck with us are the ones who embrace that idea and are excited by the thought that they don't know quite what to expect next."
