The track is the third to be taken from their recently released fourth album 'Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action'. It follows previous efforts 'Right Action' and 'Love Illumination'. 'Evil Eye' will be released as a single next month and has been given the video treatment to celebrate.
This one comes from Diane Martel, who recently worked on the controversial video for 'Blurred Lines'. Her work with Franz Ferdinand is far removed from Robin Thicke's nude-filled clip though. The VHS-style horror spoof is comprised of cut-up limbs, floating eyeballs, and other creepy images. None quite as disturbing as the new moustache that frontman Alex Kapranos' has grown for the occasion though.
'Evil Eye' is quite fittingly due for release just before Halloween. It's out on October 28. 'Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action' is available to download on ShopTo now.
