Franz Ferdinand has today shared the video for “Curious,” a brand-new recording featured on Hits To The Head (Domino), the band’s 20-track greatest hits collection which is released on Friday March 11th, 2022. 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 that life-flashing-before-your mind as you die in a film scene, where the entire course of a relationship flashes before you the instant you fall in love with someone.”
