FRANZ FERDINAND. Tonight: Franz Ferdinand
The 12-track album features the first single "Ulysses." Tonight: Franz Ferdinand is music of the night: to fling yourself around your room to as you psyche yourself for a night of hedonism, for the dance-floor, flirtation, for your desolate heart-stop, for losing it and loving losing it, for the chemical surge in your bloodstream. It's for that lonely hour gently rocking yourself waiting for dawn and it all to be even again." - Alex Kapranos (vocals/guitar/keys)
