Franz Ferdinand have announced their new single ‘Bullet’, which will be released on 20th January, 2014.
The track is taken from their recent album ‘Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action’.
The band have also revealed the video for ‘Bullet’, which was directed by Andy Knowles, who has also directed videos for the Cribs, the Vaccines and Peaches.
On working with the band, Knowles said, “I’ve worked with the band in one way or another since their first gig, back in 2002, which was in my ex-girlfriend’s bedroom. I wanted to capture a stripped back, honest performance and I think having a good relationship with the guys helped achieve this. The ‘bulletime’ effect was added to really draw out little moments that every fan will recognize as signature Franz live performance tics. The song is so fast, it demanded an equally dizzy editing style to really capture the energy.”

14th London – Roundhouse
