Franz Ferdinand have unveiled the video for their new single ‘Right Action’ – you can watch it by scrolling down the page and clicking ‘play’.
The promo was directed by Jonas Odell, who was also responsible for the band’s ‘Take Me Out’ video. It appears the director wanted to link back to the Glasgow group’s early roots, as both videos are strikingly similar in style.
‘Right Action’, produced by Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard and Alexis Taylor, is the lead single from the band’s upcoming fourth album ‘Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action’. The record, which will be the band’s fourth and is set to be released on August 26, will feature guest vocals from Roxanne Clifford of Veronica Falls and Todd Terje and Bjorn Yttling of Peter Bjorn and John.
Last week, Franz Ferdinand and Jarvis Cocker joined Beck onstage at London’s Barbican to perform his ‘Song Reader’ album. The band then performed a last minute show at The Dalston Victoria in London the night after (July 5).
The tracklisting for ‘Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action’ album is as follows:
‘Stand On The Horizon’
‘The Universe Expanded’
‘Goodbye Lovers & Friends’
