Always Ascending is the fifth studio album by Scottish indie rock band Franz Ferdinand. It was released on 9 February 2018 through the Domino Recording Company. It is the band's first non-collaborative album in over four years, following Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action (2013). It is also their first album to feature new member Julian Corrie, who joined shortly after the departure of Nick McCarthy.

Always Ascending is the fifth studio album by Scottish indie rock band Franz Ferdinand. Alex Kapranos told NME the band. When you’re recording in 2017 you need to be looking ahead to the next thing. What haven’t people even heard in 2018? They made sure not to take away the naturalistic side of their music: It’s very tempting in the studio to digitally tidy everything up – Photoshopping your music. Everything was played and nothing is programmed

Overall Consensus: Always Ascending sees Franz Ferdinand taking some new and fun directions, while keeping the best from their succesful formul. xpand. 0 of 4 users found this helpful . this isn't a great start (it's a good one, but I highly doubt you'll want to come back to this afterwards. 1 of 1 users found this helpful.

Album by Franz Ferdinand. Listen on apple music. Album Songs and Lyrics.

Alternative rock darlings Franz Ferdinand officially return with their fifth studio album, Always Ascending. Take Me Out from their 2003 self-titled debut is a certified classic, while the homoerotic Michael isn’t too far behind. Focused on the present, Always Ascending arrives after a five-year hiatus. All in all, the results are more positive than not. Always Ascending. While Franz Ferdinand aren’t nearly as big as they once were, they remain alluring past their lucrative prime. Always Ascending isn’t ‘the second coming’ or a massive resurgence for Alex Kapranos and company. It is, however, an enjoyable, well-rounded album with some notable experimentation. Not everything feels epic, but more often than not, the majority is deserving of praise and worth checking out. ✓ Gems: Always Ascending, Huck and Jim, Glimpse of Love & Feel the Love Go.

Clean record, a booklet, large poster, download card, antistatic sleeve, nice artwork... what more could you ask for?!And as commented below I can confirm: it doesn't get any pinker than this :).
Samardenob
I was expecting it to be a baby pink or lilac. Nope, it's hot pink. Love it.
Querlaca
(There is a softer pink coloured version by the way, that's the US pressing of it)
