I was pleasantly surprised this morning to wake up and find that Franz Ferdinand had just released thier new sing ‘Ulysses’. I never thought that years (wow has it been that long?) later I would still really like Franz Ferdinand. It has been an awful long wait since their last record ‘You Could Have it So Much Better,” but the band is returning with “Tonight: Franz Ferdinand” due out January 26th on Dominio Records. Yes this is a little over a two month wait, but I guess we’ve waited this long already. The first single titled ‘Ulysses’ is classic Franz Ferdinand. The band managed to maintain the sound that made them so popular in the first place. The ‘get your ass out of the seat and dance sound.’ They have indeed thrown in a little Spoon-like funk which only adds to the greatness of the track. I can’t stop listening to it. Its that good. Is it January yet?
