Alison Goldfrapp Launches Solo Chapter With ‘Digging Deeper’

It's an infectious Claptone collab...

Alison Goldfrapp opens out a new solo chapter with ‘Digging Deeper’.

An icon of modern British pop, she linked with Will Gregory to form Goldfrapp. A deeply intelligent electro-pop endeavour, the two matched underground tropes to spicy lyrics, continually challenging the mainstream on their own terms.

With her stellar songwriting and dramatic visual appeal, Alison Goldfrapp now embarks on a solo iteration, beginning with brand new single ‘Digging Deeper’.

Constructed alongside super-producer Claptone, some of the sonic touchstones recall her earlier work – you can hear shades of Italo Disco, aspects of British synth gurus, such as the Human League. There’s a desire to step forwards as well, however, with Alison Goldfrapp unshackling herself from the past.

In Alison’s own words;

“In ‘Digging Deeper’, I’m effortlessly gliding through air, on a gloriously hot breezy night arriving at a blissed-out dancefloor on the island of my dreams.”

Claptone expands;

“When Alison Goldfrapp asked me to collaborate, it was a no brainer for me. I’ve always been enchanted by the magic world she created and her stunning voice, so I was really happy that we could merge our trickery to create ‘Digging Deeper’.”  

Tune in now.
