The live version of the new Franz Ferdinand single that I linked to a few weeks ago was a little lackluster, but the mojo is back on the studio version, which is available for download exclusively through iTunes. It has some killer Beatles harmony vocals, stomps along like "Take Me Out," and even has a mini tempo downshift echoing the big one that made that song so unusual. I would be surprised if it was as big a hit as "Take Me Out," but these boys are so sharp and swagger with such rascally charm that they might just pull it off again.
Franz Ferdinand's "Do You Want To?"
The band's stomping, swaggering new single.
