Description

Scottish quintet Franz Ferdinand are back with Always Ascending! Nothing short of a rebirth, the album's ten songs are a triumphant recasting of the group, bursting with fresh ideas and vigorous sonic experimentation. Always Ascending was recorded at RAK Studios, London and Motorbass in Paris, with the help of French producer extraordinaire Philippe Zdar (Cassius, Phoenix, The Beastie Boys), the mutual affection between band and producer seeping into every dazzling groove.

Always Ascending shows Franz Ferdinand broadening their palate, as exuberant as it is euphoric, creating a sound that singer, Alex Kapranos, refers to as "simultaneously futuristic and naturalistic." These are the louche tales of the Parisian night, the exhilaration of an Italian car racing down the autobahn; a feeling of euphoria so pure it could only exist on a knife's edge. As such, best to press play expecting nothing more than a good time. "I hope that when you listen to it you feel exhilarated," Kapranos adds, "Until you fully absorb the lyrics."

LP includes the album in a single LP jacket, 8 page 12" booklet, 24" double sided poster, and a download card.
