Franz Ferdinand have announced details of Hits To The Head, a 20-track greatest
hits collection showcasing the world-conquering success of the band’s career to
date.

Released on Friday March 11 th 2022 on Domino, Hits To The Head also features two
brand-new tracks Billy Goodbye and Curious, produced by Alex Kapranos, Julian
Corrie and Stuart Price (Dua Lipa, Madonna, Pet Shop Boys). 

Armed with an astute sense of what constitutes the ‘classic pop song’ (famously
proclaiming that they write music ‘to make girls dance to’) the music of Franz
Ferdinand continues to resonate globally and over the course of nearly two decades
they’ve become, commercially and critically, one of the biggest UK bands in the
world, selling over 10 million albums, 1.2 billion streams to date, 14 platinum
albums, winning Brit, Ivor Novello + Mercury Prize awards, Grammy nominations and
selling 6 million tickets for their incendiary live show worldwide.

Talking about the process of picking tracks for the album, lead singer Alex Kapranos
said: It's the same as writing a set-list for a festival: you want to play the songs you know people want to hear. The hits. Bring the hits to the head. The heart. The feet. That means obvious singles, but also songs you know have a special meaning for both band and audience like Outsiders. We also added two new songs, recorded last year:

Billy Goodbye and Curious, both co-produced at the last stage with Stuart Price. I
have friends who believe you’re somehow not a “real” fan if you own a best of rather
than a discography. I disagree. I think of my parents’ record collection as a kid. I
loved their compilation LPs. I am so grateful that they had Changes or Rolled Gold.

Those LPs were my entrance point. My introduction.
