i guess you’re supposed to get high…?

“Well I found a new way
I found a new way
C’mon doll and use me
I don’t need your sympathy”


Yes…yes indeed.  It’s been quite a while but at last! 2009 will indeed mark the return of dance-punk heroes, Franz Ferdinand.  Their new record entitled “Tonight…Franz Ferdinand” makes its way Stateside on 27 January via Domino/Epic and if it’s anything like the first two records, you can expect Billy here to be very happy. Very happy. 

For starters, the leadoff single, “Ulysses” is making its way ’round the blogosphere and it will make its way to your iPod very soon as well. Simply a slippery, devious track we’ve got here as I would expect nothing less from the new Scottish gentry.  Opening with a simple bass line which gives way Alex Kapranos imploring us to “get high”. Add in some synth which gives way to the big chorus payoff.  These guys do pop very well and if “Ulysses” is a signal of what’s come then I’m right on board once again!
