“Right” Time for Franz Ferdinand to Announce New Album

posted May 16, 2013, 7:02 pm by ROCKthusiast | Filed Under Music News, Releases | comment 2 Comments

We all knew it was only be a matter of time before Franz Ferdinand revealed the details of their eagerly anticipated fourth studio album. It’s entitled Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action, and will be released by the band’s longtime label Domino on Tuesday, August 27th. Preorders are being taken as we speak here.


Franz Ferdinand have spent the past year premiering the 10 tracks that will make up their next album at festivals around the world, with the most recent being Coachella last month. If you weren’t lucky enough to have caught any of these new songs live, Franz Ferdinand have also filmed a teaser to get you into the “right” frame of mind:

Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action follows a similar design scheme to their self-titled debut, as well as 2005’s You Could Have It So Much Better. Sound-wise, Franz Ferdinand fans can expect much of the same, consistent sonic excellence from the four Glasgow natives, which is just “right” by them!


Album Tracklisting:
Right Action
Evil Eye
Love Illumination
Stand on the Horizon
Fresh Strawberries
Treason! Animals.
The Universe Expanded
Brief Encounters
Goodbye Lovers & Friends

    I know I am going to be slated for this, but the prospect of a new Franz Ferdinand album is as welcome to me as an outbreak of bubonic plague. They are without doubt the worst of a bad bunch of early 2000’s British indie popsters (along with Keane, Snow Patrol, Kaiser Chiefs et al) who have done so much damage to British indie music over the last decade, damage I see no signs of recovering. Sorry, Gilles, you may like this, but Franz Ferdinand make me shudder.

    I won’t engage in the confusing debate of what is, isn’t, and when does something stop being, indie, but I will say that the idea of more of this watered down, by-the-book nonsense does nothing to help any genre or scene or locale it is associated with.
