Surely we can all agree that Franz Ferdinand are now very much in the David Attenborough class where we can justifiably call them 'national treasures'. Agreed? Agreed.
The Scottish indie titans return with their fourth album, Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action on 26th August, and in advance of this we have an exclusive, highly entertaining, clip of them as they talk us through the new record.
To our ears the songs sound like their strongest, exciting and most energetic since their classic self-titled debut which, along with The Strokes, rescued music from a hideous nu-metal slump.
Basically, It's still music that girls can dance to. And that's good with us. Watch below and enjoy.
Lead single Right Action is released 19th August
Album Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action is released 26th August
An extended version of this film will be available on franzferdinand.com from Monday
