Happy New Year – it’s been quiet for a couple of weeks here, not only because of Christmas and New Year, but also because (fanfare please) I got married just before New Year.
Back to the matter in hand. Franz Ferdinand will release their fifth album, Always Ascending on February 9. It’s their first album since 2013’s Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action. It was recorded at RAK Studios, London and Motorbass in Paris, with the help of French producere Philippe Zdar (Cassius, Phoenix, The Beastie Boys).
Two tracks have been unveiled so far – which you can see below:
The album tracklisting is as follows:
- Always Ascending
- Lazy Boy
- Paper Cages
- The Academy Award
- Lois Lane
- Huck And Jim
- Glimpse Of Love
- Feel The Love Go
- Slow Don’t Kill Me Slow
