Franz Ferdinand - All My Friends (LCD Soundsystem)

A few weeks ago this song emerged on Franz Ferdinand's MySpace page without any indication of where it came from, or if would ever be released. Being a big fan of the original version on LCD Soundsystem's Sound of Silver album, I really loved Franz Ferdinand's even more upbeat, dancey version of the song. Well, it's officially been announced that this song will be released as a bonus track on LCD Soundsystem's single for "All My Friends." But even more notably, the CD single also features another version of the song covered by Velvet Underground founder John Cale (included below). As you can guess, his version is not quite as catchy, but a treat nonetheless. As if that wasn't enough, the single also features three previous unreleased tracks, including the amazing "Freak Out."
