Goldfrapp have no record deal, after their contract with label EMI ran out in August
Goldfrapp have no record deal.
The 'Rocket' hitmakers feel they have an "endless world of opportunity" in front of them since their contract ran out this August after five albums.
Singer Alison Goldfrapp - who has been touring in Europe and the US with the band - said: "Our contract ended in august so we are no longer with EMI. We aren't with anyone. It means when this tour ends I will have a meltdown. No, it's very exciting if I'm serious. It's exciting because it is kind of, like, 'wow, this is a whole new chapter really, what will we do and will anyone want us?'
"And we definitely want to do more work together and write a new album and we want to do some other things. It feels like an endless world of opportunity really, it's exciting.
Alison, who is joined in the band by multi-instrumentalist Will Gregory, also said that their hectic touring schedule often leaves her craving a little peace and quiet.
She added to BBC6 Music: "When I'm on tour, you're surrounded by music all the time, and noise, you're playing your own music and then you get on a plane and there's music, you get to a hotel and they're playing music in the lobby, you go to a restaurant - music. So I'm, like, really quite into no music."
Goldfrapp's fifth album 'Head First' is available now.
