Franz Ferdinand release a new double A sided single, The Fallen / L. Wells, on Domino Records on April 3rd 2006.
Rousing new song L.Wells was recorded a mere couple of weeks ago in Melbourne Australia while the band were in the country as part of the Big Day Out Festival. Band and label were so excited by the results it was decided to scrap the original plans for The Fallen release and incorporate the new track.
The third single to be taken from their second album, You Could Have It So Much Better, which reached number 1 on its release last October, it also features a mix 'ruined' by acclaimed French duo Justice plus a further brace of brand new tracks .
The Fallen was recorded as part of the bands album sessions in Scotland and New York with acclaimed producer Rich Costey.
The single, released on 2 x 7"s and CD also includes two extra new songs, Jeremy Fraser, a bloggers favourite, sung by Nick McCarthy and Brown Onions, an instrumental recorded in New York. All new songs were produced by Franz Ferdinand and herald another musical leap forward.
Currently on tour in South America where they play a number of headline shows as well as some support slots with U2. The last month has seen the band visit Australia as part of the Big Day Out festival and perform in Japan, where they played a sold-out Budokan show in Tokyo.
The novel's author saw a cut of the film and loved each of the changes the movie's director had made.
