Franz Ferdinand’s first new album in five long years will be arriving next month, and we’ve already received a rapturous serving of the beloved Scottish post-punk/dance rock band’s music in the form of lead single Always Ascending. It’s just the sort of punchy electrifying strutter that we’ve been missing from Alex Kapranos and his bandmates. Franz Ferdinand follows up that ace first track with Feel The Love Go, a whirlwind disco funk and post-punk flavored delight rife with plenty of their usual swagger and Kapranos’ deep mesmeric drawl. Feel The Love Go also spends much of its second half in feverish urgency compounded by a whole lot of impassioned sax and frisky beats. New album Always Ascending is goinig to be a superb treat when it drops on Domino come February 9th, and I can’t wait to hear the new material live too. Pre-order the new album, here, and stream/purchase Feel The Love Go as a single, here.
