FFS, Piss off!: Franz Ferdinand & Sparks share debut single

Fans of Franz Ferdinand and Sparks have been given a first glimpse at what the bands’ collaborative album set for release later this year will sound like.

The pairing is one that has been in the pipeline for quite a while, with both bands expressing a mutual love for each others’ output – and now we are able to hear them together as FFS for the first time on ‘Piss Off’.

What’s more, we think it works. The track is far less abrasive than its title suggest, but demonstrates the kind of oddball pop and angular arrangements that we have come to expect from the members of this six-piece super group. Listen below.

Those who dig it will have to wait a few months until the full record is released via Domino, but you can feed your anticipation by catching the band on tour at any of the following dates:

June 16th – Glasgow Art School
June 29th – London, The Troxy
August 24th – Edinburgh Festival
August 25th – The Albert Hall, Manchester
