Popular Scottish indie rock musicians Franz Ferdinand are gearing up for the release of their brand new single, titled ‘Fresh Strawberries’ on April 7, 2014. The single has been taken from the band’s highly acclaimed fourth studio album – titled ‘Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action’ – and it features Roxanne Clifford of Veronica Falls and was produced by Prince House Rabbit.
Moreover, ‘Fresh Strawberries’ also features ‘Erdbeer Mund’, a b-side track in German language. The end of 2013 saw the ‘Do You Want To’ musicians playing shows in Australia and Japan and they are scheduled to return to the UK in March 2014, before kicking off their extensive tour in the United States and Canada.
Eagulls will be the band’s support in the UK, except London, where Mazes will open for the ‘Take Me Out’ musicians on March 14, 2014 and The Bohicas will open for them on March 15, 2014.
