Franz Ferdinand have revealed ‘Feel The Love Go’, the latest track to be taken from their forthcoming album ‘Always Ascending’ – and you can listen to it now on the Shoot Music – New Releases Playlist.
‘Feel The Love Go’ – which is also a new addition to the Fantasy Premier League playlist – is accompanied by a stunning video shot in LA and created by acclaimed director Diane Martel, who said: “I’m excited to work with Franz for the third time! They are close friends and steller artists. I think this is their best album to date. Each song could be a single, it’s expansive musically, wonderfully produced and the lyrics are brilliant as usual. This new incarnation of the band is perfection!”
‘Always Ascending’ (released by Domino on February 9) is the band’s fifth album and was recorded at RAK Studios, London and Motorbass in Paris, with the help of French producer extraordinaire Philippe Zdar (Cassius, Phoenix, The Beastie Boys). Nothing short of a rebirth, the album’s 10 songs are a triumphant recasting of the group, bursting with fresh ideas and vigorous sonic experimentation.
Having launched ‘Always Ascending’ with a live streamed launch event at Paris’s Point Ephémère, which was broadcast on the Franz Ferdinand Facebook page and more recently completed a short tour of the US in early December, the band return to the UK in February for a tour where they will be joined by Albert Hammond Jr. and which includes a show at London’s 02 Brixton Academy on February 24.
Franz Ferdinand – Alex Kapranos, Bob Hardy, Paul Thomson, Julian Corrie and Dino Bardot – are a Scottish band who have gained multiple UK top 20 hits, sold millions of albums worldwide, been nominated for several Grammy Awards and have won two Brit Awards and an NME Award.
