Goldfrapp has today released the video for their current single Ocean. Directed by Alison Goldfrapp, the clip is a typically stunning addition to the band’s portfolio of work. Ocean comes ahead of the release of a deluxe edition of their top ten, 2017 album Silver Eye, released on 6th July.
Alison returned to Fuerteventura, where the videos for Anymore and Everything Is Never Enough was shot to film her scenes, whilst she directed Dave in Madrid, during a break in Depeche Mode’s current world tour.
Speaking about the video for Ocean, Alison explains:
‘I had an amazing time directing Dave in the video for the track and we couldn’t be happier with the end result.’
Silver Eye: Deluxe Edition is a two-disc set featuring new artwork and a bonus disc of remixes and alternate versions, including a previously unreleased remix of Anymore from the band’s Will Gregory.
