KCRW Presents: Franz Ferdinand

August 6, 2013The charming Glaswegian rock band is back with a new album — Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action — due out August 27. Alex Kapranos and company give KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic a preview, featuring the album's first single, "Love Illumination."

The Glaswegian dance-rock champions in Franz Ferdinand took a brief hiatus, but they never missed a beat; in fact, they sound better than ever. Upon their return to Morning Becomes Eclectic, Franz Ferdinand's members seemed to be having a blast. In songs like "Love Illumination," you can hear the group's signature bass lines and crisp drum fills making it seem as if no time has passed at all.
