March 2014 is turning into a busy month for Goldfrapp with their Tales of Us cinema event and the release of “Thea,” the latest single from Tales Of Us, on March 25th, 2014. “Thea” comes with a remix package including brand new mixes by Twin Shadow, Blood Diamonds, WAWA and Red Top.
Goldfrapp recently announced details of a Tales Of Us cinema event – a worldwide screening of the film Tales Of Us followed immediately by an exclusive dramatic live performance transmitted into cinemas from the surroundings of the legendary Air Studios in London. The state-of-the-art experience will be broadcast by Arts Alliance Media across the UK, Europe, North America, Australia and New Zealand on the evening of March 4th, 2014.

Inspired by Goldfrapp’s latest album, Tales Of Us, the film is a 30-minute journey through five of the individual stories featured on the album. Stranger, Laurel, Jo, Drew and Annabel interconnect subtly, sharing themes of love, loss, madness and identity, taking the viewer on a unique musical journey.
With only two stories having been seen previously this is an incredible exclusive opportunity to see the film Tales of Us as it was intended, as a complete journey and on the cinematic big screen, available in select locations for one night only.
The Tales Of Us film was co-created by Alison Goldfrapp and director & writer Lisa Gunning (Nowhere Boy, Seven Psychopaths, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen). The marquee creative team behind the live cinematic event includes Executive Producer, Catherine Ugwu, MBE (Executive Producer of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Opening and Closing Ceremonies); set designer Shona Heath (Dior, Valentino, Prada) who also created the owl that graced Goldfrapp’s Seventh Treealbum artwork; and lighting designer Rob Sinclair (Vampire Weekend, Pet Shop Boys).
Says Alison Goldfrapp,
“We’re very excited to present a unique event, the Tales Of Us film alongside an intimate live performance, to our fans across the world. We’ve loved touring the Tales Of Us album and can’t wait to bring our live show to local cinemas”.
The tour also includes a performance at the The Lowry in Salford, where Alison Goldfrapp curated her first ever art exhibition. This is the first exhibition within The Lowry’s new “Performer As Curator” series, and shows artwork Alison has selected from international collections.
