Пятый студийный альбом шотландской инди-рок-группы на американском компакт-диске.
Герои танцевального инди-рока взрослеют только снаружи и продолжают высекать тот же танцевальный инди-рок, разве что прибавив к нему чуть больше электронных звуков. Всё благодаря экстраординарному продюсеру Филлипу Здару, который до этого работал с Cassius, Phoenix, Beastie Boys.
Always Ascending is the fifth studio album by Scottish indie rock band Franz Ferdinand. It was released on 9 February 2018 through the Domino Recording Company. It is the band's first non-collaborative album in over four years, following Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action (2013). It is also their first album to feature new member Julian Corrie, who joined shortly after the departure of Nick McCarthy. Three singles were released from the album; "Always Ascending", "Feel the Love Go", and "Lazy Boy".
Background and recording.
Following the release of Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action, the band's fourth studio album, in August 2013, the band collaborated with American rock band Sparks under the name FFS. They released a self-titled album in July 2015 and briefly toured. In July 2016, it was announced that Nick McCarthy, one of the band's founding members, was taking a break from the band to spend more time with family and focusing on side projects. It was announced in May 2017 that two new members had joined the band; Dino Bardot, former guitarist for Scottish indie rock band 1990s, and music producer Julian Corrie. Corrie joined the band for the recording sessions of the album, while Bardot joined after recording was completed.
The band recorded the album at Motorbass Studios in Paris and RAK Studios in London. They previously used RAK Studios to record FFS in late 2014. For Always Ascending, they worked alongside Philippe Zdar, one-half of French synthpop duo Cassius and frequent collaborator with French indie pop band Phoenix, on the album.
