Goldfrapp Releases New Video "Drew" Ahead of 'Tales of Us' Album

Goldfrapp's latest album is titled 'Tales of Us' and will be released via Mute Records on September 9th.

Yesterday, the artist offered up her first video for the new album. "Drew" is directed by well-known editor Lisa Gunning, who will be creating four more videos for Tales of Us. The tune and the video strike an ethereal and dreamy mood.

Gunning tells us about her impetus to begin video directing: “I've realised that writing and directing are a natural progression from my years in the cutting room. Being an editor has sharpened my instincts to capture what I need on the set and to focus on the essence of the story. Also, collaborating with so many brilliant people on these five films over the last six months has been inspiring.”

Over the Rainbow: An Interview With Herb Alpert

Music legend Herb Alpert discusses his new album, Over the Rainbow, maintaining his artistic drive, and his place in music history. "If we tried to start A&M in today's environment, we'd have no chance. I don't know if I'd get a start as a trumpet player. But I keep doing this because I'm having fun."
