“Rocket”, the new single from Goldfrapp’s forthcoming album Head First, hit my inbox today, and it’s a scorcher. I’ve missed them ever since 2008’s Seventh Tree release (particularly the “A&E single and remix package), and “Rocket” will surely make fans of the band clamor for the upcoming release.
Allison Goldfrapp’s signature croon is in full swing, and tight composition and production from Allison and partner Will Gregory set a particularly nostalgic tone. In the best way possible, “Rocket” mirrors your favorite 80’s movie soundtrack, and the remixes from Richard X, Grum, Penguin Prison and Tiesto reinforce that vibe. Highly recommended.
Head First is scheduled for a March 9 release date.
