"I don't know anything about what's happened with the song we worked on with Christina," the band's namesake, Alison Goldfrapp, tells Spinner. "We haven't heard a thing. We don't know what she's doing! No one will tell us. God knows what will happen with it, if anything at all, but she was very lovely, incredibly relaxed and quite nice."
It is unconfirmed if Goldfrapp's song, which was unfinished after their time spent in the studio with Aguilera, will make the cut on 'Bionic.' Regardless, Goldfrapp says the experience was a worthwhile one -- a bit flattering, even -- and all Christina's idea.
"She contacted us! We were in between touring and writing another album, and we had never really been asked like that before, so we just thought it'd be a really interesting thing to try out," Goldfrapp says. "We went over to L.A. and only spent a few days with her, hence why we didn't finish the track that we wrote for her."
Working with top pop stars is not the only extra boost of exposure Goldfrapp have received Stateside in recent years. Their music, especially the 2005 single 'Ooh La La,' is consistently used in American television, including Diet Coke ads and 'Sex in the City' -- a fact Alison relishes in. "It's weird to hear your song on TV, but I rather like it," she says. "I wish our music was played more, actually. A lot of people don't know who we are, even though our songs have been around for a while and they've heard them."
Perhaps Goldfrapp will nab more exposure with the recent release of 'Head First,' the band's fifth and catchiest album to date.
