FFS releases "Piss Off" on April Fool's Day? And the gag is...it's not a joke!

Going to see FFS on their tour in a couple of months - this song makes it sound like it's going to be a lot of fun.

I had not heard about FFS being a thing, and it is wonderful. Rory, I still owe you big time for turning my Sparks-curiosity into a full-blown fandom with your career-retrospective post from last year. Posting this everywhere today.

This is definitely more Sparks-y than Franz Ferdinand-y but I completely dig it.

I was certain it would be a joke, given the date.

Huh, it sounds more like classic Sparks than recent Sparks stuff, since they're recording with a band here. Kind of cool!

This is like squeeeeeeee level awesome. But then anything involving Sparks usually is.

It's so beautiful.

This album has been my most anticipated of 2015, and the first taste does not disappoint. I weep tears of joy.

I had heard this was happening but the date got me too. I'll consider it an anniversary present!

Wait are Sparks touring with Franz Ferdinand? I am seeing them in Pittsburg next month and that would be awesome to see Sparks too.

I heard it on the radio last night and thought it was brilliant. Unfortunately, I didn't catch the intro, so I had no idea who it was. This post just saved me from a bunch of googling.

New song out, and holy shit. I'll be honest, I was not 100% sold after Piss Off, but this is one of the best new songs I've heard in a while.
