Frou Frou are an electronic duo composed of Imogen Heap and Guy Sigsworth from England. They released their first and only album Details in June 2002, which has elements of trip/hop, ambient, pop and rock, using a wide range of traditional instruments and the ethereal vocals of Imogen Heap. 180 gram audiophile vinyl. Limited first pressing of . 00 individually numbered copies on Red vinyl.

And technology is used in a very human way on Details, a collaboration between producer Guy Sigsworth and singer/songwriter Imogen Heap. Together, Sigsworth and Heap comprise the British duo Frou Frou, which has the sort of name that listeners might expect from one of Europop's more bubblegum acts. Hearing the name Frou Frou, one might expect something along the lines of ABBA, Fun Fun, Jemma & Elise, Bananarama, or Aqua. But there is nothing bubblegum about Details - quite the contrary

Released June 4, 2002.

Frou-Frou is also the name of Count Vronsky's tragic horse in Tolstoy's Anna Karenina. One of the first vocalists Sigsworth contacted was Imogen Heap. Heap relates that Sigsworth invited her to his studio to write lyrics for a four-bar motif he had, on condition that she included the word "love" somewhere. The first line she came up with was "lung of love, leaves me breathless"; thus the Details album track "Flicks" was born. They released their first and only album, Details in June 2002. An album of electronic music with elements of trip hop, pop and rock, the eclectic, intricately produced tracks use a wide range of traditional instruments including cellos, autoharps, guitars, keyboards, and Indian drums, with layered vocals from Heap. The album received critical acclaim, but this did not translate into mass sales the duo had hoped for. "Breathe In" was released as the first single internationally.

Frou Frou ‎– Details. Label: Universal Music ‎– MOVLP2050, Music On Vinyl ‎– MOVLP2050. This album deserved only the very best pressing and MOV delivered. I'm a huge fan of this album, listened to it more than you'd believe since the week it came out and strongly recommend purchasing this if you're a fan of this album. Not sure if the 1,000 limit is just for the red version and subsequent repressings will exist, or if it's just 1,000 like many other MOV releases.

By: Frou Frou (2002, Electronic).

Heap and Sigsworth first worked together on Getting Scared from Heap's 1998 solo record, I Megaphone.
