New Franz Ferdinand Album in August

Franz Ferdinand - Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action

Franz Ferdinand will release a new album on August 26th entitled Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action. They recorded the LP between frontman Alex Kapranos’ Scotland-based home studio, guitarist Nick McCarthy’s Sausage Studio in London, and during sessions in Stockholm and Oslo. The Scottish four-piece’s previous release came in 2009 with Tonight, its most popular singles being “Ulysses” and “No You Girls”.

A press release mentions Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action having several “interesting” collaborations, including one with Veronica Falls’ Roxanne Clifford. A limited “Passport Edition” of the album will coincide with its release, and will include a double vinyl version of the album in a hand-numbered sleeve, a live studio recording called Right Notes, Right Words, Wrong Order, an extra 7″ with two bonus tracks, a bonus 12″, and four postcards — each from a member of the band. Check the album and track listing below:
