Franz Ferdinand takes us into a surrealistic drive-thru into their Sunday “get-together” in their new video “Always Ascending” where we see the quintet in their natural habitats doing what they love the most: songsmithing. Shot by the acclaimed French directors AB / CD / CD, the video will make your rethink your brunch’n’nap priority on Sundays:

“We’re happy to now be Always Ascending on the screen, with ABCDCD capturing the mood of the song and likenesses of the band in perfect detail. This is pretty much a typical Sunday afternoon round at Franz Ferdinand’s flat.” shared frontman Alex Kapranos.

“Always Ascending” is from the Scottish band’s upcoming fifth studio album with the same title, which will be out on February 9th, 2018. But the band will start touring way before that:
