With the release of their new album Always Ascending, which will be released on February 9th 2018 via Domino, Franz Ferdinand today share the latest cut from the new record titled Lazy Boy. Listen below.
The new track follows on from the recent launch of the Diane Martel (Miley Cyrus, Charlie XCX, Justin Timberlake) directed video for Feel The Love Go which sees frontman Alex Kapranos cast as an unhinged evangelical preacher.
Always Ascending was recorded at RAK Studios, London and Motorbass in Paris, with the help of French producer Philippe Zdar (Cassius, Phoenix, The Beastie Boys). The album’s announcement was accompanied by a launch gig at Paris’s Point Ephémère, which was broadcast and is now streaming on the Franz Ferdinand Facebook page.
Always Ascending is available to pre-order now and will be available on CD, vinyl and ltd edition cassette via DomMart, with a special DomMart edition, featuring marbled blue and white vinyl, with a signed print and tote bag.
The band have announced at Banquet New Slang show at the Kingston Hippodrome on February 8th (buy tickets here) as well as two in-store appearances on the day of album release, 9th February, in Glasgow and Edinburgh. Franz Ferdinand will embark on an extensive tour in the beginning of 2018, including a show at London’s 02 Brixton Academy on Saturday the 24th of February. Full worldwide dates can be found below.
