Както вече писахме, новия албум на Franz Ferdinand се казва “Always Ascending” и ще го чуем на 9-ти февруари. Излиза чрез Domino на CD, винил, касета и разбира се – дигитално.

Албумът е записан в RAK Studios, Лондон и Motorbass в Париж с помощта на изключителния френския продуцент Philippe Zdar. Фронтменът Alex Kapranos определя новите записи като “едновременно футуристични и натуралистични”.
