Previously they shared its fun and dance-y title track, “Always Ascending,” as well as a video for the song, plus the album’s second single, “Feel the Love Go,” as well as its third single “Lazy Boy.” They also stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to perform “Always Ascending.” Then they did a session for SiriusXM where they covered Angel Olsen‘s “Shut Up Kiss Me,” from her fantastic 2016 album, MY WOMAN. They also stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to perform “Feel the Love Go.” Then they shared a video for “Glimpse of Love” and covered Drake’s “Passionfruit” for the Canadian radio show The Strombo Show. They also performed five songs on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in May.

Always Ascending was recorded at RAK Studios in London and Motorbass in Paris, with French producer Philippe Zdar (Cassius, Phoenix, The Beastie Boys). The current lineup of the band is Alex Kapranos (vocals, guitar), Bob Hardy (bass), Paul Thomson (drums), Julian Corrie (keyboards, guitar), and Dino Bardot (guitar). Kapranos refers to the sound of the album as “simultaneously futuristic and naturalistic.”
