Goldfrapp’s new single might just be the song of the year.

Based on the novel Annabel by Kathleen Winter, it is based on the tale of a poor black child born in the Brewster Projects of Detroit, Michigan.

Shit, wrong one.

It is based on the tale of an intersex child exploring his gender identity somewhere rural at a time when his contemporaries are busy getting strawberry Chupa Chups stuck on each others balloon knots, so to speak.

Kathleen Winter has this to say on the matter:

‘I’d handed Alison Goldfrapp an egg and she’d held it until it bore an infinitesimal crack, and out of that space escaped the longed-for bird girl in each of us, and the bird girl had her wings and could fly.’

Can you imagine what the fucking novel’s like?

The song and video, however, are all kinds of beautiful.

  3. I read the book a couple of years ago and it’s amazing. Beautifully written – not difficult to read (unlike the book author’s quote on the post here :-) ). It’s atmospheric and of course the story of the struggle, mostly emotionally, but also physically – both from Annabel herself as well as people around her were captured without resorting to melodrama.
    In fact, having heard the song and the video clip – I would say that both are rather apt representation of the book. Read it read it read it!
