Franz Ferdinand played tracks from their forthcoming new album ‘Tonight: Franz Ferdinand’ at a surprise London show at The End nightclub last night (December 1).
The band previewed four songs from the new record, out on January 26: set opener ‘Turn It On’, ‘Live Alone’, ‘What She Came For’ and forthcoming single ‘Ulysses’.
There was time for a few older classics, including hit singles ‘The Dark Of The Matinee’ and ‘Take Me Out’.
Speaking to NME.COM after the show, frontman Alex Kapranos said: “I really enjoyed it, I think we all did. We had a few technical problems, but no one seemed to mind.
“It was a very energetic room, and they seemed to really like the new stuff. It’s always a bit nerve-wracking to see what people think of it when you’ve been in the studio – especially ‘Live Alone’, we’ve just started playing that one!”
