Listen To Goldfrapp Come “Alive”

With just three weeks left till the release of Goldfrapp’s fifth studio album Head First, it’s time to take a listen to another track off the album. Head below for the bouncy, synthy (aren’t they all?) confection “Alive,” which features additional production by Richard X (who also remixed lead single “Rocket”).

Like “Rocket” and “Believer,” “Alive” will have you conjuring up visions of Xanadu and Supertramp while reaching for a pair of legwarmers. “Like the way that you drive your car, I like the way that you turn your head,” Alison Goldfrapp sings. And that’s perfect, because Head First is shaping up to be the first great listen-while-driving album of 2010.

Getting back to “Rocket,” Alison posted the following on the duo’s blog last week:

“you’re probably wondering where the hell the ‘rocket’ video is? there has been quite a bit of post production on this (and very little budget) so people have been working really hard to get it to you as soon as we possibly can. it’s nearly there…….!”

She’d best start cracking the whip, though—”Rocket” is being made available at digital download stores next week.
