At 15:57 today, Goldfrapp announced the planned release of Seventh Tree:Paraphrasing, Deer said:

fourth album, Seventh Tree through Mute on February 25th 2008. Seventh Tree is written and produced by Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory and was recorded at their own studio deep in the English countryside.

A sensual counterpoint to the glitterball glamour of Supernature, Seventh Tree is gilded in the butterfly colours of an English surrealism shared from Edward Lear to John Lennon*. It shimmers and shines with the warmth of a hazy summer, an electric whirlpool over which Alison’s glistening voice soars.

* - Only "Lear" & "Lennon" was said, further specification is by my assumption.

No further details have been released yet. If history is our guide (I watched the Black Cherry release preamble quite closely), track names will be hush-hush until about the time that promotional copies are sent out and we can be pretty sure there'll be a track called Seventh Tree ;)

I wonder how many sales will be lost and/or additional promotional effort will be required, through not releasing before Christmas - Although all forms of ad-space are at a premium prior to the 'Developed World's Annual Television and Overeating Festival (those who don't know it's Christmas can't afford to buy many CDs, anyhow).

The prognosis sounds more toward the Felt Mountain formulation, which I like and's been the word on Midnight To Six Management's authoritative Goldfrapp forum for months now. If that's the way it'll be, I'm gagging for it, and every remix!
