On Aug. 27 Franz Ferdinand will release their fourth studio album Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action. The Glasgow dance rockers' first LP since 2009, the new effort is currently streaming on NPR. In a recent interview with The Observer, frontman Alex Kapranos revealed that the band had considered breaking up two years ago. "I wanted to split the band up, because in my head it felt like one of those jobs ... the ones I had to jack in. I didn't like the routine and the obligations," Kapranos said. "And whether those obligations lay with my contemporaries, my peers, my record label, the fans, the audiences – or maybe myself ... I felt ... It was time to, erm, stop that."

After taking time to "decompress" the band returned to the studio with a better outlook. "When we came to making the new album, we decided that oddness was just us!" says Kapranos. "And we should enjoy that: it should be at the heart of our existence if we want to continue."
