- Rocket Remixes
Goldfrapp is on a whole new health kick. After drinking down their breakfast smoothie of Olivia Newton-John and Hall & Oates, they take their purple Van Halen “Jump” pills and don spandex and sweatbands for an hour long work out with Jane Fonda. They must be getting fit for Xanadu. “Rocket” is the duo’s propulsive new single that’s a glorious rush of synth euphoria from their new and 5th LP Head First out March 9th. With breathy fantasy, Alison Goldfrapp sings about taking you on her rocket and never letting you come down. It’s the kind of song that makes you feel like there’s a wind machine running through your hair or you’ve just eaten a Peppermint Pattie. The remixes are absolute giddy good fun. Tiesto turns out seven plus minutes of pure disco anthem pleasure. Richard X, Penguin Prison and Grum all stab and succeed at glittering, swirly, splashed-out, high 80’s pumpers.

The Rocket remixes are :

Tiesto Remix
Length: 6:57

Richard X Eight Four Remix
Length: 6:58

Richard X One Zero Remix
Length: 7:00

Richard X One Zero Dub
Length: 7:00

Penguin Prison Remix
Length: 6:37

Grum Remix
Length: 6:45

Tiesto Radio Edit
Length: 4:21

Richard X One Zero Radio Edit
Length: 3:57

Grum Radio Edit
Length: 3:42
