Franz Ferdinand Gives Us A “Glimpse Of Love”

“Love is gonna come as a photographer / Yes, a photographer, yeah yeah”

Franz Ferdinand take us into the majestic countryside where they chill by the fireplace, take photos, run with sheep, and accomplish mundane tasks in the most bizarre fashion in their video “Glimpse Of Love.” Despite the mild surreality, it is an oddly soothing video that makes you dream of the country life:

“Glimpse Of Love” is from Franz Ferdinand’s fifth record Always Ascending, which was released back in February. The video version of the track is actually a re-working of the original from the album and was re-recorded live and mixed by Serban Ghenea (Rihanna, Lorde). So you’re not hallucinating if it sounds different from the record. The quintet is on tour now:
