Franz Ferdinand have an ace new single and video

Franz Ferdinand have an ace new single and video
This is going to sound odd, but the early section of Franz Ferdinand’s new single reminds us of the Doors… before the beat kicks in and they definitely become Franz Ferdinand. The single is Always Ascending, the title track from their new LP.
They’d promised that this album would be a new direction, but hold firm FF fans: this is very much a recognisable sound, albeit one with more disco than normal. Are Daft Punk on the knobs? (No.) They wanted to be both futuristic and raw, and as opposed as that sounds we really can hear it. This is not a rehash or a random tangent but a genuine evolution.
The Always Ascending LP is out February 9th.
