The artwork for Seventh Tree featured her dressed as a clown because it is an "iconic image" with "so many different connotations".
In the early 1990s, Alison served as a guest vocalist with the electronic band Orbital and trip hop artist Tricky.
In 1999, she was introduced to composer Will Gregory after he had listened to an early version of the song "Human".
Further singles from the album included "Annabel" and "Stranger".
In July 2015, Alison Goldfrapp announced on Twitter that the group had returned to the studio to work on music for the forthcoming seventh album, but as far as a release date she could only state it would be "sometime in 2017".
Goldfrapp's début album Felt Mountain was released in September 2000 and produced the singles "Lovely Head", "Utopia", "Pilots (On a Star)" and "Human".
