This exuberant, unencumbered record is the first from the Glasgow band since 2009's Tonight. In their time away, they've rediscovered the imagination, vitality and fun found on their classic, era-encapsulating debut Franz Ferdinand, an album that unequivocally conquered the planet with relentless charm and exquisite bravado.
Recorded over the last year in Scotland, London, and Stockholm the new album cements Franz Ferdinand's status as the most unique and adventurous of British bands. Produced with the likes of Joe Goddard & Alexis Taylor of Hot Chip and Todd Terje, the ten songs that make up Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action take what propelled Franz Ferdinand from the incestuous Glasgow Art School world to, well, the entire world - painterly lyrical detail, heavyweight hooks, precise aesthetic vision and that uncanny ability.
