Franz Ferdinand

In the first of today’s ‘big-name F-bands releasing a new LP’ features, Franz Ferdinand have said they’re releasing a new LP – their fourth, in fact – on 26 Aug.

‘Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action’ (so yeah, that’s only the singular ‘action’), which is classified by FF’s Alex Kapranos as “The Intellect Vs The Soul, played out by some dumb band”, apparently recreates the “imagination, vitality and fun” of Franz Ferdinand’s first LP, ‘Franz Ferdinand’. So, that’s rather nice.

This is its tracklisting:

Right Action
Evil Eye
Love Illumination
Stand On The Horizon
Fresh Strawberries
Treason! Animals.
The Universe Expanded
Brief Encounters
Goodbye Lovers & Friends

And this is a trailer revealing… well, not a lot:
