Franz Ferdinand Releases New Song “Curious”
- Scottish rock band Franz Ferdinand released the second single called “Curious” from their upcoming greatest hits album “Hits To The Head”, following “Billy Goodbye”.
The album is set to be released on March 11, 2022, featuring 20-track. Produced by Alex Kapranos, Julian Corrie and Stuart Price.
Frontman Alex Kapranos said of the song, “What’s the meaning behind the song? A meet-cute on the first page as tension enters left on a dark stage, but as our stars collide I’m curious: will you want me when you’ve got me? I’m a future seeker. Are we the future? I’m curious. I had this idea for the lyric—kind of the reverse of one of those life-flashing-before-your-mind as you die in a film scene, where the entire course of a relationship flashes before you the instant you fall in love with someone.”
The accompanying music video was directed by Andy Knowles.
He added about the bideo, “So, it’s a dance song we said later on when thinking about a video. And ‘we’ve always said we play dance music,’ said Bob, ‘so why don’t we dance in the video?’ So we gave Andy Knowles, our old pal—who was in Bob’s class at Art School and played with Franz Ferdinand in 2005/6—a shout and he was up for it. You can spot his cameo… and, yes, that is us actually dancing.”
