Franz Ferdinand to issue “Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action” (Updated)

Hmmm. The new Franz Ferdinand LP seems to makes reference to three factors of the Buddha’s Eightfold Path. It’s titled Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action; these could be seen to correspond with “Right View,” “Right Speech,” and “Right Conduct.”

You can hear the lead single, “Right Action,” here. If there’s an actual dharmic connection in the lyrics, I’m not hearing it. Maybe if their next album is called Right Resolve, Right Right Livelihood, Right Effort, Right Mindfulness, Right Concentration, then we’ll be on to something.

Update: there’s now a video but other than a flash of a bandmember in lotus position, it’s just a fun little ditty made watchable. See it here.
