Always Ascending’ the new album from Franz Ferdinand, is being released by Domino on Friday the 9th of February. Nothing short of a rebirth, the album’s 10 songs are a triumphant recasting of the group, bursting with fresh ideas and vigorous sonic experimentation. ‘Always Ascending’ was recorded at RAK Studios, London and Motorbass in Paris, with the help of French producer extraordinaire Philippe Zdar (Cassius, Phoenix, The Beastie Boys), the mutual affection between band and producer seeping into every dazzling groove. ‘Always Ascending’shows Franz Ferdinand broadening their palate, as exuberant as it is euphoric, creating a sound that singer, Alex Kapranos, refers to as “simultaneously futuristic and naturalistic.” From the city which jointly played host to the album’s conception, the band will mark the announcement of ‘Always Ascending’ with a live streamed launch event at Paris’s Point Ephemere, to be broadcast from the Franz Ferdinand Facebook page from 8.30pm BST tonight, Wednesday October 25, during which the band will preview a selection of their new recordings. ‘Always Ascending’ is available to pre-order via iTunes and all DSPs now and will be available on CD, vinyl and ltd edition cassette via DomMart, with a special DomMart edition, featuring marbled blue and […]

Ed Sheeran broke through in 2011 after playing literally hundreds of gigs and releasing music independently, when his debut major label single, The A Team, hit No.3 on the UK chart. The release served as the lead single from Sheeran’s debut studio album, +, which entered the charts at No.1. His second studio album, x, was released in 2014. It also peaked at No.1 and won the Brit Award for Album of the Year. Sheeran has broken records in the live sphere. In July 2015 he took to the stage of Wembley Stadium, solo, to play to 240,000 people over three consecutive sold-out nights. Moreover, he’s also been involved in an array of spellbinding collaborative performances. In 2012, Sheeran performed at the London Olympics’ closing ceremony alongside members of Pink Floyd and Genesis, and, in 2015, he shared the stage with Beyoncé and Gary Clark Jr at that year’s Grammy tribute for Stevie Wonder. His genre-defying third studio album, ÷, released in early March 2017, has broken yet more records; and, following a headline show at Glastonbury, Sheeran is now gearing up to embark on a world tour for 2018.

In RE:BIRTH, Russell Brand wrestles with these questions while unravelling the matrix of modern media, politics, sex, fatherhood and death. Join one of comedy’s fiercest talents as he tries to make sense of life having just made a new one. Russell, re the show: “How do we make sense of the madness of our lives once we become parents? What am I going to tell my daughter about conformity and responsibility? What happens if she grows up to be like me or, worse, date someone like me?” Since rising to fame in 2003, Russell Brand has established himself as one of one of the world’s most celebrated stand-up comedians. His acclaimed tours include 2006’s SHAME, 2007’s ONLY JOKING, 2009’s SCANDALOUS (which marked his US live debut) and 2013’s critically acclaimed and hugely successful MESSIAH COMPLEX, which was also a best-selling DVD. Aside from stand-up, Russell is also a phenomenally successful broadcaster, actor, author, podcaster, columnist, political commentator as well as a mental health and drug rehabilitation activist. RE:BIRTH will begin in April 2017 and visit every corner of the UK and Ireland, finishing in November 2018.
