Author's Note: Franz Ferdinand, one of the known pop rock bands the emerged in 2000s, has recently introduced the music video of Curious. Check out the press release below to known more about this brand new song that is now part of the band's 20-track greatest hits collection named “Hits To The Head.”

Franz Ferdinand have shared the video for Curious, a brand-new recording featured on Hits To The Head, their 20-track greatest hits collection which is released on Friday March 11th 2022 on Domino. 

Having previously shared Billy Goodbye, the other new track from the compilation, Curious was also produced by Alex Kapranos, Julian Corrie and Stuart Price (Dua Lipa, Madonna, Pet Shop Boys) and is accompanied by a video directed by Andy Knowles.

Talking about the track, Alex Kapranos said:
What’s the meaning behind the song? A meet-cute on the first page as tension enters left on a dark stage, but as our stars collide I’m curious: will you want me when you’ve got me? I’m a future seeker. Are we the future? I’m curious. I had this idea for the lyric - kind of the reverse of one of those life flashing before your mind as you die in a film scenes, where the entire course of a relationship flashes before you the instant you fall in love with someone.

He added about the video:
So, it’s a dance song we said later on when thinking about a video. And we’ve always said we play dance music said Bob, so why don’t we dance in the video? So we gave Andy Knowles, our old pal who was in Bob’s class at Art School and played with FF in 2005/6, a shout and he was up for it. You can spot his cameo and, yes, that is us actually dancing

Hits To The Head is available on CD, deluxe CD, double gatefold 2LP, limited edition indies only gatefold red 2LP, limited edition D2C exclusive gatefold gold 2LP vinyl and cassette.  CD and LP formats feature extensive liner notes from JD Beauvallet (former editor of Les Inrockuptibles) and exclusive, unseen photographs.
