- Franz Ferdinand »
They've taken their sweet time about it, but Scottish popsters Franz Ferdinand have finally announced details of their eagerly awaited third LP for Domino - but you'll have to wait until next year to get your mitts on it: January 26th is the release date.
Titled Tonight: Franz Ferdinand, the album contains twelve tracks recorded and produced by the band with assistance from Dan Carey (Hot Chip, CSS). A soundbite from FF frontman Alex Kapranos follows:
"Tonight: Franz Ferdinand is music of the night: to fling yourself around your room to as you psyche yourself for a night of hedonism, for the dance-floor, flirtation, for your desolate heart-stop, for losing it and loving losing it, for the chemical surge in your bloodstream. It's for that lonely hour gently rocking yourself waiting for dawn and it all to be even again"
