Silver Eye, Goldfrapp's seventh album, is dance music which evokes a pagan ritual rather than a club soundtrack. Cold, metallic electronics with a hot current of blood running through them. A 21st century moon dance. It weaves together the two strands of Goldfrapp's music like never before. If 2013's Tales of Us, a set of noirish folk fables, roamed the same pastoral landscape as Felt Mountain and Seventh Tree, then Silver Eye (a reference to the moon) belongs to the pulsing, electronic lineage of Black Cherry and Supernature only deeper and darker.

The common thread between these two modes, apart from the consistently exquisite arrangements and Alison Goldfrapp's extraordinary voice, is a set of enduring preoccupations, which inform both the lyrics and the visual aesthetic. "Mysticism, ecstasy, ritual, contemplation, metamorphosis, the elemental," says Alison, who took all of the photographs and creatively directed all artwork visuals. "I've realised that there are things I feel passionate about on a deep level and they're in this record." On Silver Eye, for the first time, Alison and Will Gregory sought new collaborators as the songs were taking shape. They spent 10 days in Dallas with John Congleton, Grammy-winning producer of St. Vincent, John Grant and Wild Beasts. In London, they teamed up with electronic composer Bobby Krlic aka The Haxan Cloak.

Alison describes
Goldfrapp's music-making as "a constant quest. I don't think you ever feel like you've achieved everything, it's impossible. You're always searching, trying to attain some kind of utopia in what you do." With Silver Eye, that search has taken them to yet another new place, one that's full of mystery, menace and transcendent beauty. Goldfrapp's quest continues.
