Our first taste of the forthcoming album of the same name, Franz Ferdinand’s Always Ascending, is a tech-laden wonder. But can they do it justice live?

Short answer? Yes, yes they can.

They’ve just appeared on Jimmy Fallon’s The Tonight Show and dispelled any doubts anybody may have had about their live ability, as Alex and crew storm through the song – arguably one of their best since the days of Take Me Out.

As for the album, Always Ascending is due on February 9.

Meanwhile, here’s the new video for the second single from the forthcoming album, Feel the Love Go
