Scottish indie-rockers Franz Ferdinand are hitting town this Friday at First Avenue to show off their new album Always Ascending, and this week the long-running band released a deliciously eighties video for their groovy single “Glimpse of Love.”

Guys, this video has it all: Corny dance moves, sheep, vintage cameras, crazy zooms, dogs, makeovers, and more sheep. How could you possibly want anything more?

Oh wait, we’ve got it: How about if the rapidly aging band did a croon-y, disco-inflected cover of Drake‘s “Passionfruit,” which is apparently the go-to Drake song for alt bands to perform now?

Franz Ferdinand busted out the cover during a live session on The Strombo Show, a radio program and live music series hosted by Toronto broadcaster George Stroumboulopoulos, who somehow has a more Greek-sounding name than Franz frontman Alex Kapranos.

Check out Franz Ferdinand at First Avenue this Friday night and keep it locked on for a recap of the show!

– Panic! at the Disco are having some fun with their Pray for the Wicked rollout by sending potatoes to their fans, by mail.

– Blink-182 have released some Snapchats that seem to imply that they’re back in the studio!

– Some random kid in KISS makeup nearly stole Dave Grohl‘s job from him at a recent Foo Fighters show in Texas.

– Words cannot convey how excited we are that CHVRCHES will be paying the Twin Cities another visit in October!
