Earlier this morning, I caught wind of news floating out of the Goldfrapp camp that made me smile on the inside and outside. Popjustice had the first bit of news on the duo's upcoming single, Rocket, which will appear on the band's 5th studio album, Head First.

Now, with the word coming through the 'Frapp site as well as official press releases, we've got all the details that make 2010 seem even more promising that already thought.

Genre-smashing musical pioneers Goldfrapp announce their brand new album Head First to be released through Mute on March 23, 2010. This will be preceded by the new single, Rocket, on March 9th, 2010.

The album is Goldfrapp's most powerful trip to date, a speedy rush of synth optimism, euphoria, fantasy and romance. With life affirming lyrics and stellar production it lifts off at full tilt and takes us on a journey to the heart of 2010.

In addition to scoring the upcoming John Lennon biopic, Nowhere Boy, Goldfrapp will tour in 2010 in support of this new album.
