Franz Ferdinand have announced details of the release of the first single from their forthcoming album.

The digital version of Ulysses will be released on December 2nd, with a CD/12" coming January 20th 2009, a week before the release of their third album, Tonight: Franz Ferdinand.

The single was produced by Dan Carey and the band as part of the album sessions which took place at the band's own HQ in Govan, Glasgow and Carey's South London studio.

Additionally the band have announced a remix competition with the website Remix parts of Ulysses will be made available from today (4th November) allowing people to put together their own unique version of the track well ahead of of it being heard on any radio station!

These remixes will then be judged by Beatport and the Beatport community with the overall winner picked by the band.

The winning entries will then be released digitally to coincide with the single release in January.

The band are about to embark on European Dates, UK Shows to be announced shortly.
