Scottish band return with 'Right Action' on August 19

Franz Ferdinand have announced a new single, 'Right Action', which will be released on August 19.

It's the first track to be taken from their fourth album 'Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action', which follows the week after on August 26. The new song was produced by Hot Chip's Alexis Taylor and Joe Goddard, and mixed by Dave Fridmann, long-time collaborator of Mercury Rev and The Flaming Lips.

The band themselves describe the new single as "the sound of 4 guys playing in a small room together. It’s the sound of Right Action. It’s the sound of Right Now." The single is available to pre-order as part of a bundle, featuring 'Right Action', new track 'Love Illumination' and live versions of 'Stand On The Horizon' and 'Right Action'. It's available pink 7" vinyl,

A bonus disc released with the special edition of the album, called 'Right Notes, Right Words, Wrong Order', features a live session from Konk Studios in London, while the album will also be released as a 'Passport Edition', limited to just 500 copies worldwide and will include a version of the album on each format plus exclusive content from the band.

The LP is the follow-up to 2009's 'Tonight' 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. Earlier this year Franz Ferdinand debuted seven new songs at a tiny gig at Glasgow venue Nice 'N' Sleazy, opening their set with three new songs: 'Trees & Animals', 'Right Action' and 'Fresh Strawberries'.

The tracklisting for the album is as follows:

'Right Action'
'Evil Eye'
'Love Illumination'
'Stand On The Horizon'
'Fresh Strawberries'
'Bullet'
'Treason! Animals'
'The Universe Expanded'
