Scottish indie ensemble Franz Ferdinand are gearing up to drop their fourth studio album this summer, the followup to 2009's acclaimed Tonight: Franz Ferdinand. The rockers have chosen August 27 as the official release date for Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action. They've already gone ahead and announced the new record's 10-song tracklist, which we've included in full below.
Mega-fans of the band will be pleased to hear Franz Ferdinand intend to release special deluxe packages of Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action. In addition to standard CD and LP formats, the album will be made available as a double CD and a deluxe LP. Both extended editions will include a live bonus disc, entitled Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Order, while the LP will come nicely packaged in a hand-numbered sleeve. (Click here for info on pre-ordering all formats.) Anyone interested in these collector's items must also surely be waiting to hear news of an upcoming Franz Ferdinand tour. No word on concert dates yet, but we'll keep you posted as we draw nearer to FF's new album release date later this summer.
