Goldfrapp Announce Spring 2020 Felt Mountain: The 20th Year Tour

Monday, 11 November 2019 Written by Jon Stickler

Goldfrapp have announced a tour to celebrate the 20th anniversary of 'Felt Mountain'.

The duo will perform their 2000 debut album in full at shows in Manchester, Gateshead, Edinburgh, Birmingham, Bexhill-On-Sea and London, where they'll play Royal Festival Hall on March 29. Reflecting on the record, Alison Goldfrapp said:

"Looking back, Felt Mountain represents a very special period in my life. It is the first album Will and I recorded as Goldfrapp, launching us in a new musical direction, and the moment for me, after 13 years or so in music, that I found a creative direction that I was truly excited about. Being nominated for a Mercury Prize was incredible and unexpected, and an affirmation that we were embarking on an important journey.

"I listened to the entire album again recently - something I don’t really ever do - and it was a surprisingly emotional experience. The songs instantly take me back. The album is still relevant two decades on, and hopefully will be interesting for people to rediscover and maybe also hear for the first time.

"In 2019, 1999 dystopian lyrics such as "I’m wired to the world, that’s how I know everything" from Utopia, and "no time to F***” from Paper Bag, have become more potent. I was intrigued then by the flawed concept of perfection which has become so much more intensified in our self-reflective social media era.

"We'll be touring the UK next March and April 2020 with our band plus a string section for a series of intimate concerts. We haven’t performed many of the 'Felt Mountain' tracks since the original release, so we’re really excited to play this album live, and more, for this significant Goldfrapp anniversary."

Tickets go on general sale at 10am on November 15. Additionally, Mute/BMG will release a special remastered edition of 'Felt Mountain' in autumn 2020.
