Published Feb 27, 2014Franz Ferdinand get their name from an Austrian archduke, so it's only fitting that they have now released a new song sung entirely in German.
The track is called "Erdbeer Mund," and it's the B-side to the new single "Fresh Strawberries" from last year's Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action. It's a perky cut that doesn't take the band too far from their dance-punk wheelhouse, although the German lyrics make it a little harder to sing along to than, say, "Take Me Out."
The "Fresh Strawberries" single will be out in the UK on April 7 through Domino.
The band previously released a German version of their song "Tell Her Tonight."
