Franz Ferdinand Return With 2 New Singles

Franz Ferdinand fans have waited more than four years for a new album from the Scottish quartet. Today, they got two treats to ease the waiting with a double A-side single in preparation for the August 27 release of fourth album Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action.

The first song, "Love Illumination," hews toward classic rock with heavy guitar riffs, but sneaking in a synthy, dance-y mid-song breakdown. "Right Action" features funky guitar strumming and hand claps whose chorus provides the inspiration for the album title.
