Goldfrapp, the British duo of Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory, have announced a new album, Silver Eye, and shared its first single and opening track, “Anymore.” Silver Eye is the band’s first album in four years, since 2013’s Tales of Us, and it’s due out March 31 via Mute. Below is “Anymore,” followed by the album’s tracklist and cover art.

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. Goldfrapp have also announced one show at London’s Roundhouse on March 27th, tickets go on sale this Friday.

Alison Goldfrapp had this to say about the album in a 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.”

Will Gregory had this to say: “I think writing an album is like being lost in a wood. You’re trying to figure out an interesting path. You don’t know whether it’s going to be a dead end or somewhere interesting and you never know when to stop because around the corner some beautiful vista might open up.”
