Franz Ferdinand have announced details of their fourth studio album, 'Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action'.

The LP, which is the follow-up to their 2009 effort 'Tonight', will be released on August 26 and was recorded in frontman Alex Kapranos’ Scottish studio and guitarist Nick McCarthy’s Sausage Studios in London, as well as sessions in Stockholm and Oslo.
