Album artwork for Franz Ferdinand - Late Night Tales by Various

Franz Ferdinand are welcomed into the Late Night Tales family with a diverse 20 track selection of musical influences, inspirations, diversions and discoveries. Announcing itself with Franz Ferdinand's own exclusive cover version of the hugely collectible 'Leaving My Old Life Behind', originally performed by Jonathan Halper, (which appeared on the cult Kenneth Anger movie Puce Moment), their Late Night Tales mix flows between dark and light, introspection and affection, dancing and horizontal appreciation. Hear them join the dots between Can, Serge Gainsbourg and The West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band, Sandy's Nelson's percussion work-out 'Let There Be Drums', the irrepressible Ian Dury, funky sensations Zapp and the Disco Dub Band and sonic explorer Lee 'Scratch' Perry. Record collectors will note the inclusion of Carrie Cleveland's Northern Soul anthem 'Love Will Set You Free' - the LP attracts sales of £300+. Also included are a set of waywardly brilliant cover versions: Justus Kohncke's dizzy interpretation of Neil Young's 'Old Man' and R. Stevie Moore's 'I'm Only Sleeping'. It wouldn't be right for Franz Ferdinand to produce a mix such as this without a nod to the country that brought them together, so Glasgow's Life Without Buildings, whose uplifting 'New Town' appears alongside 'Reach For The Dead' by Boards Of Canada. As they leave us wondering and wandering with American Spring's Brian Wilson-produced 'Sweet Mountain', we take leave of our senses and suitcases on this tour bus of your mind. We've visited soul, funk, reggae, pop, Krautrock and others besides, but before we depart, Franz frontman Alex Kapranos provides a final farewell with the self penned story 'Defibrillator'

LP - Double 180 Gram Vinyl with Download.

CD - Includes download code (slipcase and 12 page booklet) on first 10,000 Copies.
