Franz Ferdinand New version of This Fire available via download.
Franz Ferdinand have announced they will be making available a newly recorded version of This Fire, via download only on November 15th. The new version, recorded with Rich Costey, (who has just finished work on the forthcoming albums from Mars Volta and Bloc Party), has been renamed ‘This Fffire’ and is a freshly rearranged version of the live favourite that appears on the bands 2 million + selling eponymous debut album. It will be available via the bands site, www.franzferdinand.co.uk and usual legal download retailers.
Already a radio hit in the USA, This Fffire is set to follow Take Me Out as the band’s second big American hit single. A stunning new video for This Fffire has been completed by Swedish video team STYLE WAR (www.stylewar.com) and is already setting alight TV screens around the world with outlandish global action drama theme.
As the single is being released outside the UK (in America and Europe), the download is being made commercially available in the
UK to save fans the trouble of tracking down and paying for expensive imports. A radical dancefloor reworking of the track by Playgroup mainman and Output impresario Trevor Jackson will also be made available to download simultaneously.
Franz Ferdinand are: Alex Kapranos (vocal / guitar), Nick McCarthy (vocal / guitar / keyboards), Bob Hardy (bass) & Paul Thomson (drums)
