Franz Ferdinand 'Always Ascending' (album stream)
After a bunch of teasing, Franz Ferdinand are at last delivering their new album Always Ascending, which you can now stream in full.

The new LP marks the group's proper follow-up to 2013's Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Actions. It's also their first since the departure of founding member Nick McCarthy and the addition of Julian Corrie and Dino Bardot.

Always Ascending was recorded between RAK Studios in London and Motorbass in Paris with producer Philippe Zdar (Phoenix, Cassius, Beastie Boys).

Frontman Alex Kapranos previously promised the new record to be "simultaneously futuristic and naturalistic," and you can see how true that is by streaming the album for yourself below.

Always Ascending is out now via Domino, and you can see the band's upcoming tour dates here.
