More info and tracklist here

Alexander Kapranos (frontman/songwriter) about selecting the band’s
greatest hits: “It’s the same as writing a set-list for a festival: you want to play
the songs you know people want to hear. The hits. Bring the hits to the head.
The heart. The feet. That means obvious singles, but also songs you know have
a special meaning for both band and audience like ‘Outsiders’. We also added
two new songs, recorded last year: “Billy Goodbye” and “Curious”.

New single: BILLY GOODBYE
One of the two new songs (probably hits too by the
time the collection comes out) along with all the hits.

Billy Goodbye is a characteristic FF rocket.
Glamourous, uplifting, and instantly addictive.

Here we go…

‘YOU COULD HAVE IT SO MUCH BETTER’ By FRANZ FERDINAND Released 15 Years Ago…

29 September 2020

Band: Franz Ferdinand (Scotland)
Album: You Could Have It So Much Better – 2nd LP
Released: 28 September 2020

NME review: “Stacks of sex, drugs and dirty rock’n’roll – the bonnie lads shake off their
squeaky clean image for their second stonker. The biggest departures from the first album (they’re all ballads of one stripe or another), they’re sufficiently anthemic to capture Killers
fans’ hearts but with enough unexpected twists and turns to satisfy the art-rock hardcore.”

Artwork: The album’s cover art is inspired by the works of Alexander Rodchenko,
the Russian avant-garde photographer and collage pioneer. The cover image is a
direct copy of Rodchenko‘s 1924 portrait of Russian author Lilya Brick (see below).

F.F.S = Franz Ferdinand & Sparks on ‘Later With Jools Holland ‘ ….

LiveBlgLo

F.F.S: the surprising, but perfectly matching supergroup of indie pop rockers Franz Ferdinand and glam pop veterans Sparks performed two songs on the BBB’s ‘Later With Jools Holland’ show. They played ‘Johnny Delusional’ & ‘Police Encounters’. The vocals of Alex Kapranos and Ron Maell fit just splendiferous. This town is definitely big enough fo the both of them. The self-titled debut album will be released on June 8/9 and they will take each other out to go on tour. Pop glory in the making…
