Happiness Revealed

Goldfrapp have revealed the release date (UK: 4/14, no word on a US release just yet) and tracklist for the "Happiness" singles. Still no b-sides even though there were 10+ additional songs recorded but not used on the album. I'll cross my fingers that those end up released eventually. I have a hard time knowing that unreleased songs are just sitting there waiting to be loved. Anyway, I'm looking forward to hearing the Spiritualized and Beyond the Wizard's Sleeve remixes. Should be interesting.

1. Happiness - Single version
2. Road To Somewhere Acoustic Version

Maxi CD
1. Happiness - Beyond The Wizards Sleeve Re-animation
2. Monster Love - Goldfrapp vs. Spiritualized
3. Eat Yourself - Yeasayer Remix

7" picture disc
A. Happiness - Single version
B. Happiness - Metronomy Remix Featuring The Teenagers

Speaking of unreleased songs, here's a clip of them performing "Little Death" at Shepherds Bush Empire, London in 2001. It was later released on their live DVD Wonderful Electric but I have always longed for studio versions of this and other songs from that period ("Fondue Knights" and "Sartorious"). Be sure to check out the part around 4:00 where the song just goes nuts. I love it!
