Franz Ferdinand Share ‘Feel The Love Go’ From “Always Ascending” Album, Out February 9

Franz Ferdinand today release ‘Feel The Love Go’, the new single to be taken from Always Ascending, their forthcoming album on Domino out Friday February 9.

The track is accompanied by a video by acclaimed director Diane Martel (Miley Cyrus, Charlie XCX, Justin Timberlake). The video, shot while the band were in Los Angeles recently, has the feel of a public access TV religious show and sees frontman Alex Kapranos cast as an unhinged evangelical preacher.

Always Ascending is the band’s fifth album and was recorded at RAK Studios, London and Motorbass in Paris, with the help of French producer extraordinaire Philippe Zdar (Cassius, Phoenix, The Beastie Boys). Nothing short of a rebirth, the album’s 10 songs are a triumphant recasting of the group, bursting with fresh ideas and vigorous sonic experimentation.

Always Ascending is available to pre-order via iTunes 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.

Franz Ferdinand will be touring extensively in support of the new record. The full worldwide dates are as follows:
