  • Goldfrapp have again managed to pull off that rarest of feats, the ability to attain an intensity of expression and to be both futuristic and familiar. They have made this territory their own. Released on 27th September ‘Black Cherry’ will be the first of a series of Goldfrapp vinyl releases on special edition coloured vinyl.
