Franz Ferdinand’s New LP/Australian Tour

Franz Ferdinand have revealed the album title and track listing for their upcoming LP slated for a January 26 release.

Frontman Alex Kapranos described Tonight: Franz Ferdinand as “music of the night: to fling yourself around your room to as you psyche yourself for a night of hedonism, for the dance-floor, flirtation, for your desolate heart-stop, for losing it and loving losing it, for the chemical surge in your bloodstream,” He continued “It’s for that lonely hour gently rocking yourself waiting for dawn and it all to be even again.”

Translation? It’s a come down album.

Tracklisting is as follows:

‘Turn It On’
‘Kiss Me’
‘Twilight Omens’
‘Send Him Away’
‘Live Alone’
‘Bite Hard’
‘What She Came For’
‘Can’t Stop Feeling’
‘Lucid Dreams’
‘Dream Again’
‘Katherine Kiss Me’

To get us in the mood, lets revisit the bi-curious musings of “Michael” from their debut self titled album. Best heard with 10,000 fiercely heterosexual males (preferably at BDO) who instantly look sheepish after imploring Michael to dance with them at the top of their lungs. It’s almost as good as seeing guys screaming “Don’t want no short dick man!” in a club.
