Having set a towering bar for synth-pop in the 21st century, Alison Goldfrapp– the magnetic British songwriter, vocalist, performer & producer – is recognised for approaching each iteration of her stellar career from an innovative new position. With last year’s release of Alison’s debut solo album The Love Invention — an electrifying dance-pop suite — her multi-faceted musicianship reaches a new peak. “It feels like a new time, and a new era,” Alison says decisively. The momentum towards her journey into solo music was solidified back in 2021 when she collaborated with Röyksopp on the shimmering track “Impossible”. This led to Alison signing with legendary Skint Records and recording The Love Invention which marks Alison’s reawakening as a dancefloor priestess, featuring an intoxicating showcase of the disco and house influences that have always been at the heart of her musical DNA.

Alison’s previous seven albums with Goldfrapp were fuelled by unfailing modernity and a sixth sense for sounds that were more timeless than any trend. The band’s 1999 debut album Felt Mountain was nominated for a Mercury Prize and over their career they produced 3 #1 US dance singles & received multiple Grammy nominations incl. Best Electronic/Dance Album. The multi-platinum-selling band have won prestigious awards including 2 Ivor Novellos, ASCAP/PRS, Music Week, MTV Europe and Music Producers Guild awards. They were also nominated for two BRITs and a Mercury.
