Goldfrapp Plans Tour
With their Caravan Girl digital EP out today on Mute, Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory (a.k.a. Goldfrapp) look to the road for a few North American show dates beginning with a performance at Radio City Music Hall on September 12.
Caravan Girl, named for the track off the group's Seventh Tree release from earlier this year, features the original cut of the song, as well as a live choral version, an acoustic rendition of "Monster Live," and a remix of "Little Bird" by Animal Collective.
In other release news, Goldfrapp will release an iTunes Original album on August 12, which was recorded live in New York and includes new versions of tracks that span the band's entire discography. Commentary and anecdotes from the bandmembers complete the package.
