She debuted in 1998 with her single ...Baby One More Time. She is one of the most influential and popular post-2000 icons of music.

The couple had two sons, Sean (born September 2005) and Jayden (born September 2006). Spears filed for divorce in November 2006.Britney's debut album' \u2026Baby One More Time' was a huge commercial success. It debuted at number one in the U.S. with 120,500 copies sold in its first week on the Billboard 200, where it remained for 6 non-consecutive weeks, and it also debuted at number one in Canada, and reached the top ten in many other countries. The record has been certified 14\u00d7 Platinum in the United States. It is the highest selling album by a teenager both in the US and worldwide.

It stayed on the Billboard 200 for two years until it was moved to the Pop Catalog chart. According to the RIAA, it is the 27th best-selling album in American music history, and 4th best-selling album by a female artist. This album, its lyrics, and its music videos maintained the typical virgin image of the late 1990s teen pop revival for Spears.Following the success of her debut album, Spears released the album 'Oops!\u2026 I Did It Again' in May 2000. It debuted at number one in the U.S. by selling 1,319,193 units during its first week of sales, breaking the SoundScan record for the highest album sales in its debut week by any solo artist.

The album took in lesser-known producers such as RedZone and big names including Moby and R. Kelly. Spears co-wrote eight of the album's thirteen songs and co-produced several pieces of her material for the first time. 'In the Zone' reached number one in the U.S. charts during its debut week, selling over 609,000 copies. This made Spears the first female in the Nielsen SoundScan era to have her first four studio albums to debut at number one. All three singles, Me Against The Music, Toxic and Everytime, reached #1 on the Australian ARIA charts. 'Toxic' became one of Britney's signature songs and the video is considered by most to be her best.In July 2004, Spears became engaged to back-up dancer Kevin Federline.

{"key":"6116","name":"The Prodigy","bio":"The Prodigy are a Braintree, Essex, UK, electronic music group (aka Prodigy), formed by Liam Howlett (composition, keyboards), in 1990. They have sold over 20 million records worldwide, which is almost unequalled in dance music history.Their music consists of various styles ranging from rave and breakbeat hardcore in the early 90s to alternative rock and big beat, with punk vocal elements in later times. Other current band members include: Keith Flint (dancing, vocals), Maxim (MCing, vocals) and live guitarist Rob Holliday (Marilyn Manson, Gary Numan, Curve, Sulpher).Leeroy Thornhill (dancing, occasional live keyboards), was a member of the band from 1990 to 2000, as well was a female dancer \/ vocalist Sharky, who left the band during their early period. Other notable former live members include: Gizz Butt (guitar - English Dogs, Janus Stark, Sabbat) - toured with the band for three years throughout the late '90s, Kieron Pepper (drum - Realtv, Happy Gilmore) - played for the group from 1997 to 2007 (also contributing to the solo projects of Maxim and Flint's band, Flint), as well as Jim Davies (guitar - Pitchshifter), who also performed in Flint.The Prodigy first emerged on the underground rave scene in the early 1990, releasing their d\u00e9but LP Experience (1992) and have since then achieved immense popularity and worldwide renown. Some of their most popular songs include \"Charly\", \"Out of Space\", \"No Good (Start the Dance)\", \"Voodoo People\", \"Firestarter\", \"Breathe\" and \"Smack My Bitch Up\".The name displayed on album covers changed from 'The Prodigy' to 'Prodigy' between Music for the Jilted Generation and The Fat of the Land (1997) and back again with the release of Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned (2004). However, Howlett has attested the title has always been 'The Prodigy' and the change was made only to fit within the displayed logo.Maxim originally began as an MC for the band before doing vocals on \"Poison\", a track on their second album Music for the Jilted Generation and then several others on The Fat of the Land. He remains a member, MCing at the live shows.Flint began as a dancer for the band before moving on to become a vocalist initially on the track \"Firestarter\" but then for several others on the third album The Fat of the Land. Flint is probably the most visually recognisable member of the band and considered by many to be the front-man though he has very little input to writing the songs. He still sings with the live show but has virtually no input on the albums however, he did write the single \"Baby's Got a Temper\".Following the relative commercial and critical failure of 2004's Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned the band released a greatest hits Their Law: The Singles 1990-2005 before 2009's return to form Invaders Must Die.After the release and success of The Fat of the Land, Howlett was feeling down as he could not produce any songs up to standard up until one of his friends showed him the program Reason from Propellerhead Software. This program inspired him who instantly went to the studio and started producing tracks using it; he decided he did not want to use it for baselines though, as he prefers the analogue sound.","featuredImage":"http:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/6116_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"please contact"}

{"key":"254","name":"Moby","bio":"Moby (born Richard Melville Hall on September 11, 1965, in Harlem, New York) is an American musician, singer-songwriter, DJ and photographer. He is well-known for his electronic music, vegan lifestyle, and support of animal rights. From beginning as a musician in 1982, Moby gained attention in the early 1990s with his electronic dance music work that experimented in the techno and breakbeat genres. He has sold over 20 million albums worldwide. He has also released music under the names Voodoo Child, Barracuda, U.H.F., The Brotherhood, DJ Cake, Lopez, On the Rim of the Wheel a Nail, and Brainstorm\/Mindstorm.Moby plays keyboards, guitar and bass guitar. He took his performing name from the novel Moby-Dick by Herman Melville, who is his great-great-granduncle. His work, while focused in general on various forms of electronic music, have explored many other styles.Early yearsMoby used to be in a punk rock band called the Vatican Commandos, which was formed in 1980. The group evolved away from punk in 1989 for electronic music. He realized his music tastes and growth were going in a different direction than his previous band's vibe, and he broke off on his own.His first album \"The Story So Far (aka Moby)\" featured the single \"Go\", which gained popularity in many discos, and earned a spot on the UK charts. The song is so popular that Moby still plays \"Go\" regularly in his sets. \"Go\" is a progressive track using the string line from \"Laura Palmer's Theme\" from the TV drama Twin Peaks.1994-1998His first album for the UK based MUTE Records was Everything Is Wrong (which had US distribution via Elektra) , which earned early critical praise and minor commercial success. He followed that up with a hard rock\/electronic album called Animal Rights in 1996. In 1997, he released I Like to Score, a collection of music included in movies. Among those tracks was an updated version of the James Bond theme used for the James Bond film Tomorrow Never Dies. However, both Animal Rights and I Like to Score had only limited success and Moby and Elektra parted company however he remained signed to MUTE.1999-2004After a decade's worth of music, Moby's breakthrough album was 1999's Play. Mainstream reviewers raved about his talents on the album (released on V2 Records) though some early fans were let down. The album has 18 tracks and was the first album in history to have all of its tracks commercially licensed: \"Porcelain,\" for instance, appeared on TV commercials for Bailey's Irish Cream, Hong Kong's PCCW and Nordstrom, and Volkswagen's MKIV Jetta; \"Find My Baby\" was on a commercial for American Express featuring golfer Tiger Woods. The album's tracks eventually were accepted in various radio formats, but because of Play's extensive licensing, the album could have been financially successful even without radio play. In addition to fame garnered through its licensing, Play is also notable for its extensive sampling of old blues recordings collected by Alan Lomax. In a 2005 posting on his web site, Moby theorized that his eagerness to license his music is a result of \"growing up in poverty.\"In 2001, Moby founded the Area:One Festival. It was a popular touring rock festival that featured an eclectic range of musical genres. A second tour was organized for the following year.In 2001 Moby also earned the ire of Eminem after calling his music misogynistic and homophobic; Eminem later satirized Moby (among others) in \"Without Me,\" calling him a \"fag\" and questioning his relevance with the claim \"Nobody listens to techno.\" Moby replied that he hadn't played techno since 1992. The two were in a confrontation at the 2002 MTV Video Music Awards, though Moby expresses respect for Eminem as an artist.In 2002, Moby briefly had a television show on MTV, Se\u00f1or Moby's House of Music, which focused mostly on more obscure electronic music. Also in 2002, Moby released 18, an album that had 18 tracks. The most popular song on the album was \"We Are All Made of Stars\". Moby says he wrote \"We Are All Made of Stars\" because of the September 11th Terrorist Attacks, which happened on his birthday.2005In 2005 Moby released \"Lift Me Up\", a single from his album Hotel, which featured, in addition to numerous remixes, UK company Digimpro's software. The program allows users to remix the song - using any or all of the samples included\u2014and save it as an MP3 file. Thus unlimited, personalized versions of the title track were possible. Digimpro had previously seen exposure with group Erasure's single \"Breathe,\" allowing users the same ability. Instead of his usual usage of samples, all of the vocals and instruments on \"Hotel\" were performed live in the studio by Moby and vocalist Laura Dawn, who is the Cultural Director of MoveOn.org.For certain dates on Moby's 2005 European tour, Liveherenow provided concert goers with CDs of the show 10 minutes after the show finished. Other Mute Records artists like Erasure and Client have previously used this company for similar reasons.2006Moby has recently scored the soundtrack for Richard Kelly's upcoming movie 'The Southland Tales'. Whilst he is generally against composing music for films, he was a huge fan of Kelly's previous film 'Donnie Darko' and could not resist the offer the director gave him.ITV in the United Kingdom use Moby's song \"Lift Me Up\" for their coverage of Formula One racing by using the song as the intro. and also snippets to segues for interviews and advertisements. Also, Moby had one of his older songs used in a Original HBO series, The Sopranos. This song, \"When its Cold I'd like to Die\" was used in the last scene in which Tony was in his dream state. Besides musicMoby is a vegan, non-denominational Christian and self-proclaimed \"simpleton\" (for his often sincere and idealistic political assessments). Moby lives in New York City. Until recently he co-owned a small restaurant and coffee shop called TeaNY, where he occasionally waited tables. He also organized the Little Idiot Collective, a group of artists that also includes cartoonist and musician James Kochalka.

{"key":"6155","name":"Shakira","bio":"Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll (born February 2, 1977), known simply as Shakira, is a Grammy-award winning Colombian singer-songwriter, musician, composer, record producer, music-video director, dancer, choreographer, model, game creative director, businesswoman, multi instrumentalist and philanthropist who has sold over eighty million albums worldwide. She has won two Grammy awards, ten Latin Grammy awards, seven Billboard Music Awards, twenty-seven Latin Billboard Awards and has been nominated for a Golden Globe. She has been in the music industry since 1990, releasing her first album the following year. A child prodigy, she began writing poems and songs at age four and taught herself the guitar at age ten. The death of a half sibling and her father's reaction to it inspired her to write her first full song at age eight. Little known outside her native Colombia, it wasn't until 1995 when Shakira took full creative control over her music, a fusion of rock and dance pop with both deeply personal and biting political lyrics. The approach yielded two multiplatinum albums. In 2001, she broke through into the English-speaking market with the release of her first album in that language, Laundry Service, which she wrote and produced herself and which has sold 3,5 million copies in the United States and 15 million (sometimes stated as 20 million) copies worldwide. The album's massive sales came in large part thanks to the worldwide hit, \"Whenever, Wherever\" a dance song with unique Andean instrumentation which soon became one of the highest selling singles of the 21st century. Shakira is half Lebanese, one quarter Spanish, and one quarter Italian. She was born to a Colombian mother of Catalan and Italian descent, Nidia del Carmen Ripoll Torrado, and a Lebanese father, William Mebarak Chadid, in Barranquilla, Colombia, where she says she grew up among the Lebanese and Italian communities. Her father was born in Lebanon, and immediately after that, his family migrated to New York, but he soon migrated to Colombia. Shakira, which means \"grateful\" in Arabic (\u0634\u0627\u0643\u0631\u0629), is named after her paternal grandmother. She was one of seven siblings, one of whom is her road manager. Shakira attended a Catholic school and in second grade was rejected for the school choir because her vibrato was too strong. She began writing and composing music at the age of eight and later choreographed dance routines. At school, she says she had been known as \"the belly dancer girl\", as she would demonstrate a number she learned every Friday at school. \"That's how I discovered my passion for live performance,\" she says. One of the first songs she wrote was called \"Tus Gafas Oscuras\" (Your Dark Glasses), which was about her father's grief over a son who had died in a car accident.Between the ages of ten and thirteen Shakira was invited to various events in Barranquilla and gained some recognition in the area. It was at about this time that she met local theater producer Monica Ariza, who was impressed with her and as a result tried to help her career. During a flight from Barranquilla to Bogot\u00e1, Ariza convinced Sony Colombia executive Ciro Vargas to hold an audition for Shakira in a motel lobby. Vargas held Shakira in high regard and, returning to the Sony office, gave the cassette to a song and artist director. However, the director was not overly excited and thought Shakira was something of \"a lost cause\". Vargas, not daunted, was still convinced that Shakira had talent, and set up an audition in Bogot\u00e1. He arranged for Sony Colombia executives to arrive at the audition, with the idea of surprising them with Shakira's performance. She performed three songs for the executives and impressed them enough for her to be signed to record three albums.Magia (Magic) was Shakira's debut album, recorded with Sony Colombia in 1991, when she was 13. The album did not fare well commercially, selling less than one thousand copies. After Magia, Shakira released Peligro (Danger) in 1993. The album was better received than Magia, though it was considered a commercial failure, due to Shakira's refusal to advertise it.Shakira then decided to take a hiatus from recording so that she could graduate from high school.Shakira returned to recording in 1995, supported by a new confessional and Alanis Morissette-oriented persona that affected some of her next albums, and made her third studio one, Pies Descalzos (Bare Feet), bring her great fame in Latin America. The singles \"Estoy Aqu\u00ed\" (I'm Here), \"Pies Descalzos, Sue\u00f1os Blancos\" (Bare Feet, White Dreams), and \"D\u00f3nde Est\u00e1s Coraz\u00f3n?\" (Where Are You, My Heart?) became pop culture icons. Pies Descalzos sold more than 4 million copies, which prompted the release of a remix album, titled simply The Remixes, which sold more than a million copies. The Remixes also included Portuguese versions of some of her best-known songs, which were recorded because of her success in the Brazilian market.Her fourth album, \u00bfD\u00f3nde Est\u00e1n Los Ladrones? (Where Are The Thieves?), was released in 1998. It was produced by Emilio Estefan, reportedly cost US$3 million, and had more of a polished sound than Pies Descalzos. It was even more successful and solidified her as one of the major Latin artists of the 1990s. She began to gain more fans in non-Spanish-speaking countries like France, Switzerland, Canada, and especially the United States. Eight of the album's eleven tracks became singles, including \"Ciega, Sordomuda\"(Blind, Deaf, and Mute), \"Moscas En La Casa\" (Flies in the House), \"No Creo\" (I Don't Believe), \"Inevitable\", \"T\u00fa\" (You), \"Si Te Vas\" (If You Leave), \"Octavo D\u00eda\" (Eighth Day), and the world-famous \"Ojos As\u00ed\"(Eyes Like Yours). Shakira's first live album, MTV Unplugged, was composed of \"Estoy Aqu\u00ed\" and the songs from \u00bfD\u00f3nde Est\u00e1n Los Ladrones?.In 2001, upon the success of \u00bfD\u00f3nde Est\u00e1n Los Ladrones?, Shakira began working on a crossover album to the English language. Collaborating with Gloria Estefan, Shakira wrote and recorded English versions of the tracks from \u00bfD\u00f3nde Est\u00e1n Los Ladrones?. However, Shakira later decided against using translations of older songs for the album and worked for over a year on new material for the album. The result was Laundry Service. Although it was created for the intent of selling to an English language market, the rock and Spanish dance-influenced album also featured four Spanish songs, including \"Que Me Quedes T\u00fa\" (I Hope You Stay With Me). Some critics claimed that Shakira's English skills were too weak for her to write in it, but Laundry Service was a success, with more than 13 million sales worldwide, yielding the worldwide hit \"Whenever, Wherever\" and singles \"Underneath Your Clothes\" (a Canadian number-one), \"Te Dejo Madrid\" (I Leave You Madrid), \"Objection (Tango)\", and \"The One\". The album and its singles helped to establish Shakira's musical presence in the mainstream North American market.Shakira stayed out of the spotlight for 2 and a half years, notably changing her hair style. She later announced Oral Fixation 1 and 2 due in 2005. Fijaci\u00f3n Oral Vol. 1 was released on June 6, 2005 in Europe and on June 7, 2005 in North America and Australia. The lead single \"La Tortura\" (English: The Torture, featuring Alejandro Sanz) eventually reached number one in Spain and number twenty-three on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. In Canada, \"La Tortura\" also became the highest-charting Spanish song when it debuted and peaked at number twenty-one. Its success across the rest of the world was widespread and it managed to peak within the top ten of the majority of the charts it entered. In the U.S., \"La Tortura\" spent a record twenty-five weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot Latin Tracks chart. The single in partnership with Alejandro Sanz became the best-selling Spanish single of all time according to Guiness World Records.Fijaci\u00f3n Oral Vol. 1 was simultaneously released in Latin America. It debuted at number one in Spain and at number four on the U.S. Billboard 200. It was also well-received in non-Spanish speaking countries such as Italy, Greece and Germany, where it reached number one, Austria, where it reached number three, and Canada and Hungary, where it reached number seven. The second single from Fijaci\u00f3n Oral Vol. 1, \"No\" (English: No), was released in September 2005, and peaked at number one in Spain and Colombia, for fourteen non-consecutive weeks. So far, Fijaci\u00f3n Oral Vol. 1 has sold five million copies worldwide. Her third single from \"Fijaci\u00f3n Oral vol. 1\", D\u00eda de Enero, is dedicated to her fiance, Antonio de la R\u00faa. This single was number one in some countries in Latin America, but it hadn't got success like \"La Tortura\" and \"No\". She also performed \"La Tortura\" at the 2005 MTV Video Music Awards in Miami with Alejandro Sanz. It was the first ever Spanish performance at the VMA's.Shakira's second English album Oral Fixation Vol. 2 was released on November 29, 2005 in North America and Australia, and also at this time in Continental Europe. While \"Don't Bother\" was warmly received by music critics as the album's lead single, it failed to peak within the U.S. top 40. The second single \"Hips Don't Lie\" (featuring Wyclef Jean) became her first single to reach number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and UK Singles Chart. On March 28, 2006, she re-released Oral Fixation Vol. 2 in the U.S. and released it June 19, 2006. Shakira also had the collaboration of Argentinian Rock en Espa\u00f1ol legend Gustavo Cerati on 2 tracks of both Oral Fixation albums. \"Hips Don't Lie\" is now considered Shakira's most successful song, since it topped the charts in more than 55 countries and turned into the highest-selling single of the 21st century in accordance to Harvard University.In 2000, Shakira started dating Antonio de la R\u00faa, the son of then president of Argentina Fernando de la R\u00faa, a romance that made headline news throughout Latin America. In March of 2001, he proposed to her. During Fernando De la R\u00faa's presidency, the economy of Argentina collapsed, leading to the subsequently violent December 2001 riots; in response to the turmoil, Tower Records decided to no longer sell Shakira's albums in Argentina as Antonio was directly involved in the management of his father's administration. De la R\u00faa and Shakira remain engaged, with future plans to marry.Shakira is well-known for her dancing in various music videos. The moves are based on the art of belly dancing, a part of her Lebanese heritage, which Shakira says she learned as a young teen to overcome her shyness. The intense training has afforded her a fluidity in her body movement most seen in the video to her hit \"La Tortura\". In an MTV interview, she said people told her she never moved her chest when dancing, so she danced with her chest (as well as her usual belly dancing moves) in the videos for \"La Tortura\" and \"Hips Don't Lie\".She has had several belly dance choreographers, including award-winning Bellydance Superstar Bozenka. As her MTV 'The Making of\u2026' special shows, she worked with Jamie King for the choreography, but ended up creating most of it herself","featuredImage":"http:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/6155_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"please contact"}

Whilst her cover of The Loco-Motion in 1987 reached the Australian #1 spot, it was the Stock Aitken Waterman 'hit factory' which produced her first UK chart-topper, I Should Be So Lucky, in 1988. Throughout the late 1980s, Minogue was a phenomenon in both Australia and the UK, and also saw success in Asia and Europe.Minogue went on to have the most number of consecutive UK top ten hits of any new artist. However, she left Stock Aitken Waterman and PWL Studios in 1992 and signed with Deconstruction (through BMG). Her next single, \"Confide in Me\", reached number one in Australia and was a hit in several European countries in 1994, and a duet with Nick Cave, \"Where the Wild Roses Grow\", brought Minogue a greater degree of artistic credibility. Drawing inspiration from a range of musical styles and artists, Minogue took creative control over the songwriting for her next album, Impossible Princess (1997). Parting ways with Deconstruction, she spent a short time in the musical wilderness before pulling on a pair of gold hotpants and returning to her pop roots with the #1 hit Spinning Around. Her music videos showed a more sexually provocative and flirtatious personality and several hit singles followed.Minogue's biggest hit to date is Can't Get You Out Of My Head, from the globally successful album Fever. It reached #1 in 40 countries, including the US, a market in which Minogue had previously received little recognition and has sold over ten million copies worldwide. She has become one of the most successful female recording artists in the world with #1 hits spanning three decades, and is considered a national treasure in both the UK and her native Australia.In 2005, midway through her Showgirl: The Greatest Hits Tour, Minogue was diagnosed with early stage breast cancer, causing her to halt the Australian leg of her tour. The news shocked both fans and non-fans alike, and the 'Kylie effect' was felt by breast cancer charities - both in terms of donations and the upsurge of queries from concerned women of all ages. Through her personal suffering, Minogue had inadvertently increased global awareness of breast cancer issues. After successfully coming through a tough twelve-month battle with the disease, in early July 2006 Minogue announced rescheduled dates of her now renamed Showgirl: The Homecoming Tour - fulfilling her Australian dates with a concert on November 11, 2006 in Sydney, along with extra dates, taking the updated show back to London and Manchester in January 2007.Although now more prominent in music, Minogue makes an occasional return to acting - her most recent project being her well-publicized appearance alongside David Tennant in the Doctor Who Christmas 2007 episode, \"Voyage Of The Damned\".On November 12, 2007 Minogue released the single 2 Hearts which reached #4 in the UK chart, and which also peaked at #1 in Australia. The album it was from, X, earned her a BRIT Award nomination for Best International Album. The album saw her collaborate with many writers and producers including the Freemasons and Calvin Harris. The following year, Minogue won the Best International Female Solo Artist award at the 2008 BRIT Awards, and in May also received the French Ordre des Arts et des Lettres, France's highest cultural honor.On December 1, 2008, Coldplay released \"Lhuna\", a collaborative project with Minogue, at the launch of the (RED)WIRE\u2122 website to mark World AIDS Day 2008. This would be the world premiere of the song.Minogue's tenth studio album, X, received a Grammy Award nomination for Best Electronic\/Dance Album of 2009. It was her fifth Grammy Award nomination.In 2010,Minogue released her 11th studio album titled Aphrodite,preceeded by the hit single All the Lovers,one of her most succesful singles to date.With Aphrodite,Minogue became the first female artist ever to have #1 albums on the UK charts for 4 consecutive decades.In 2011,she embarked on the Les Folies Tour,which travelled to 5 continents,and was seen by over 600,000 fans worldwide. Minogue made history in the United States for having two songs inside the top three on any U.S. Billboard chart, with her songs \"Better Than Today\" and \"Higher\" charting at one and three on the U.S. Hot Dance Club Songs.Minogue is celebrating her 25th anniversary in the music industry in 2012. Timebomb was released by Minogue as a single to coincide with the celebration of the singer\u2019s quarter century in the music business. The Timebomb Songfacts reports that the song was dropped on May 25, 2012, two months short of twenty-five years after her debut single, a cover of little Eva\u2019s The Locomotion. Minogue also released the compilation album, The Abbey Road Sessions in October 2012. The album contained reworked and orchestral versions of her previous songs. It was recorded at London's Abbey Road Studios and was produced by Steve Anderson and Colin Elliot. The album received favourable reviews from music critics and it debuted at number-two in the United Kingdom. The album spawned two singles, \"Flower\" and \"On a Night Like This\".Minogue also starred in two films; a cameo appearance in the American independent film Jack & Diane and a lead role in the French film Holy Motors.

In 1999, she was introduced to composer Will Gregory, after he had listened to an early version of \"Human\". Will felt a connection with Alison and invited her to record a demo for the film soundtrack he was composing but the demo was never completed. Following several months of phone calls, they decided to form a musical band and began performing under Alison's last name. In August 1999, they signed a recording contract with London-based label Mute.Goldfrapp's critically acclaimed d\u00e9but album Felt Mountain (11 Sept 2000, Mute), features Alison's synthesized vocals in cinematic scope, taking influence from a variety of music styles such as 60s pop, cabaret, folk and electronica (especially trip-hop). It was: a top 75 album in the UK, certified gold in October 2001 and short-listed for the 2001 Mercury Prize. Four Felt Mountain singles were issued: \"Lovely Head\" (May 2000), \"Utopia\" (Oct 2000 - #131 UK), \"Human\" (Feb 2001 - #100 UK) and \"Pilots\" (Oct 2001 - #68 UK). \"Utopia\" was re-issued slightly remixed, as \"Utopia (Genetically Enriched)\" (Jun 2001 - #62 UK).Black Cherry (28 Apr 2003, Mute), was Goldfrapp's second album, which received generally positive reviews. It represented a change in musical style, featuring a blend of glam rock and electropop. Black Cherry was a UK top 20 album, earned Goldfrapp a 2004 BRITs nomination, for Best British Dance Act and produced four singles: \"Train\" (Apr 2003 - #23 UK), \"Strict Machine\" (Jun 2003 - #25 UK, #54 AUS), \"Twist\" (Oct 2003 - #31 UK) and Black Cherry (Nov 2003 - #28 UK). DVD \/ album Wonderful Electric (20 Sept \/ 11 Oct 2004, Mute), featured live London recordings from Shepherds Bush Empire, 6 Nov 2001 and Somerset House, 13 Jul 2003.Supernature (22 Aug 2005, Mute), their third studio album, featured pop \/ EDM, inspired by Donna Summer and New Order. Supernature received a 2007 Grammy Award nomination (for Best Electronic\/Dance Album), was a top 5 UK album and was promoted by four singles: \"Ooh La La\" (Jul 2005 - #4 UK, #1 SPA, #36 AUS, #16 IRL), \"Number 1\" (Sept 2005 - #9 UK, #11 SPA, #7 CAN, #29 IRL), \"Ride a White Horse\" (Dec 2005 - #15 UK, #7 SPA, #36 IRL) and \"Fly Me Away\" (Apr 2006 - #26 UK, #40 IRL). Supernature also yielded the remix album We Are Glitter (17 Oct 2006), much of which was previously unreleased in North America.Fourth studio album, Seventh Tree (25 Feb 2008, Mute), featured another change in musical style, with a mix of folktronica and trip-hop. Goldfrapp have described it as a \"sensual counterpoint to the glitter-ball glamour of Supernature\". Seventh Tree became their most critically acclaimed album, since Felt Mountain, and was supported by four singles: \"A&E\" (Dec 2007 - #10 UK, #85 AUS, #38 BEL, #33 IRL), \"Happiness\" (Mar 2008 - #25 UK, #54 AUS), \"Caravan Girl\" (May 2008 - #54 UK) and \"Clowns\" (Oct 2008 - #115 UK).Head First (22 Mar 2010), their fifth studio album, was 80s synthpop inspired. It received mixed reviews and a 2011 Grammy Award nomination, for Best Electronic\/Dance Album. Three Head First singles were issued: \"Rocket\" (Jan 2010 - #47 UK, #55 AUS, #32 GER, #36 IRL), \"Alive\" (Apr 2010) and \"Believer\" (Jul 2010).In Aug 2010, as part of Mute ownership changes, Goldfrapp reverted to something more like the independent label they'd originally singed to (Mute had been wholly owned by EMI, 2002-10). The Singles (6 Feb 2012, Mute), was a hits compilation, with the addition of new songs Yellow Halo and Melancholy Sky.\"Drew\" (Jul 2013, Mute), was the enthusiasticly received promotional single, prior to Tales of Us (planned 9 Sept 2013).","featuredImage":"http:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/6131_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"20,000 - 50,000"}
