Artist of the week: Franz Ferdinand

The Scottish rock band who achieved global recognition in 2004 with their signature song Take Me Out, return with a fifth studio LP, Always Ascending, released by Domino on Friday the 9th of February. It follows 2013’s Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action and the 2015 collaborative album FFS.

Always Ascending was recorded at RAK Studios in London and Motorbass in Paris, with the help of French producer Philippe Zdar who has also worked with the likes of Cassius, Phoenix, and The Beastie Boys. The result is a record that is “simultaneously futuristic and naturalistic” in the words of lead singer Alex Kapranos.

If the first single and title track is any indication, Franz Ferdinand are taking a more electronic, exuberant and funkier direction so expect euphoric shows! The band will be touring the album in the UK and Ireland in February 2018.

Exclusive album bundles and tour tickets are available from Franz Ferdinand's official store on Music Glue.
