2008's Seventh Tree followed up Goldfrapp's critically acclaimed Supernature (2005) which went platinum in the UK and went on to sell over a million copies worldwide. If Supernaturewas airbrushed in bold strokes of glitterball glamour, Seventh Tree is its sensual counterpoint. Where its predecessor was built around style and sex, Seventh Tree is decorated in English surrealism reminiscent of both Lear and Lennon. It shimmers and shines with the warmth of a hazy summer, an electric whirlpool of sound over which Alison's glistening voice soars.
Goldfrapp is widely acknowledged as a modern musical treasure who presents albums, live shows and its imagery in a self-created, ambitious and consistently uncompromising way and Alison Goldfrapp has become a modern-day icon, providing musical and visual inspiration for countless other artists. Seventh Tree and its set of powerful songs is a testament to all of the above and more. Home to the singles "A&E," "Happiness," "Caravan Girl" and "Clowns,"Seventh Tree is the next installment in Mute / BMG's Goldfrapp vinyl reissue series, presented here on colored vinyl LP with an exclusive art print.
