Franz Ferdinand, one of the new millennial bands, haven’t released a new album since 2013’s Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Actions. From their first release until their last, the music they produce has been current and listenable. As a fan, it’s just the wait that has been nasty.
On February 9, 2018, Domino Recording Company will release the next album from the Glasgow-based Scottish band. It is being called Always Ascending. this new album already has a single out in rotation to herald its arrival (listen below). The new single is “Always Ascending” and carries with it a different feel. But if anything can be assessed to Franz Ferdinand, it’s that they never rely on the previous album’s music to expand on. The new song has a STRONG dance appeal for the clubbing people. If it reminds of he past, it’s in the way tha bands of the lae ’70s and early ’80s processed their music to fit the dance floor.
Alex Kapranos has called the new album “simultaneously futuristic and naturalistic”. And I’d say that fits the new single quite well. Bu judge for yourself.
The new album is being released on CD, DD, and vinyl LP. The LP release will add in an 8-page booklet, a 24″ double-sided poster, and a download card. The LP will be presented in a single jacket
