Franz Ferdinand announce new album, 'Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action'

Nearly four years after the release of Tonight, Franz Ferdinand have finally announced the proper follow-up, Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action.

The teaser trailer for the album, the fourth since the band's landmark self-titled debut in 2004, premiered two days ago, which shares a blip of the title track. It's slated for release August 26 in the UK and August 27 in the U.S.

As well, the group will be releasing a special "Passport Edition" of the LP, which will contain a double-vinyl copy, a CD copy, a 7" with two tracks not included on the official album, an extra 12", a live recording, and four special post-cards from each band member.
