If year 2018 starts like that, we are in for an adventurous ride this year. British indie rock legends Franz Ferdinand have released a new single, ‘Feel The Love Go’, featured on their upcoming album, Always Ascending. And if this song is any indication, the record is full of surprises and stylistic experiments. Give it a listen below!
“We wanted to take the sounds that are available to us now and make the sound that you haven’t heard before – the sound of the future,” frontman Alex Kapranos told NME about the band’s new album. “When you’re recording in 2017 you need to be looking ahead to the next thing. What haven’t people even heard in 2018?”
Whether it really is “the sound of the future” is up to you to decide but one thing is for sure: Franz Ferdinand’s fans will appreciate the band’s innovations. ‘Feel The Love Go’ is way different from everything the band has done before: it’s an eclectic yet smooth neighbourhood of synth tunes with saxophone and rock instruments, enriching the sound.
Always Ascending is due out February 9, and, interestingly enough, it opens with the title track of the album. It’s the band’s first record without guitarist Nick McCarthy, who left the group in 2016.
