Hit of the week: Franz Ferdinand ‘Feel The Love Go’

Franz Ferdinand 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.
