At last, Goldfrapp are back!

The electronic duo will release their fifth album in a ten-year-long career, entitled 'Head First', this Monday (22nd March) [check the 'Head First - Myspace' link to the right for a full Myspace album preview - Ed].

'Head First' follows their acclaimed last two opuses, 'Supernature' (off which came the tunes 'Ooh La la' and 'Number 1') and 'Seventh Tree' (featuring the lovely 'Happiness' and 'Caravan Girl'), respectively released in 2005 and 2007.

Fresh from releasing the first single, 'Rocket', the pair have announced a couple of shows in June, which will see fashionista and dance diva, Alison Goldfrapp, flaunt her colourful and stylish outfits on the stage of The O2 Academy in Oxford on the 7th and The Leamington Spa Assembly in Warwickshire, respectively on the 8th.

So far these are the only dates confirmed, probably making many a Goldfrapp fan feel left out, but hopefully more shows will be added along the way, so watch out for further announcements right here.

Tickets cost £22.50 (+fees) and go on sale tomorrow, Friday 19th March, at 9AM.
