Franz Ferdinand have announced their first best-of compilation, titled Hits to the Head, which will be out March 11 via Domino. "I have friends who believe you’re somehow not a 'real' fan if you own a best of rather than a discography. I disagree," says Alex Kapranos. "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.”
The 20-track album includes favorites like "Take Me Out," "Michael," "The Dark of the Matinee," "Do You Want To," "The Fallen," and "Ulysses," as well as two new songs, “Billy Goodbye” and “Curious,” which were produced by Kapranos, Julian Corrie and Stuart Price (Zoot Woman, Madonna, New Order). You can watch the video for "Billy Goodbye," which has a little bit of '70s glam/bubblegum in there, below.
