Scottish rock band Franz Ferdinand released the second single called “Curious” from their upcoming greatest hits album “Hits To The Head,” following “Billy Goodbye”. The new album features 20-track, produced by Alex Kapranos, Julian Corrie and Stuart Price and released on March 15th. The only other new track on ‘Hits To The Head’ is ‘Curious,’ which frontman Alex Kapranos called “quite a different-sounding song” when speaking in a recent interview. “Sonically, it’s more at the silky dance floor end of what the band is about,” he explained. “That one is about imagining yourself in a situation at the beginning of a romantic relationship, being part of the magical moments and suddenly being overwhelmed by the sense of what’s to come and wondering how you will be when repetition, routine and every day is what your relationship becomes.

The track comes alongside a video that sees the band put on their dancing shoes. “So, it’s a dance song we said later on when thinking about a video. And we’ve always said we play dance music, said Bob, so why don’t we dance in the video?” Kapranos said of the accompanying clip. “So we gave Andy Knowles, our old pal who was in Bob’s class at Art School and played with FF in 2005/6, a shout, and he was up for it. You can spot his cameo and, yes, that is us dancing.” Franz Ferdinand will head out on the UK and European tour in support of the record in March. Kicking off in Barcelona on March 15, dates also include shows in London, Manchester, Glasgow, Madrid, Lisbon, Bilbao, Munich, Milan and Rennes.
