Out on Strut next year, Franz Ferdinand collaboration

The magnificent Orchestre Poly-Rythmo De Cotonou are to release their first album in over 20 years next March, the Quietus is pleased to report. Cotonou Club will be out on March 29th via the always reliable Strut label, and will be accompanied by a major European tour.

Say Strut: "Produced in Paris entirely on vintage analogue studio equipment, this new album refreshes Poly-Rythmo classics such as 'Gbeti Madjro' (featuring Angelique Kidjo) alongside a firing selection of brand new compositions. The album also features a special bonus track, an exclusive collaboration between Poly Rythmo and Franz Ferdinand’s musicians."
