Franz Ferdinand start work on new album

Franz Ferdinand have begun writing material for their forth album, according to frontman Alex Kapranos.

The singer has been writing new songs with guitarist Nick McCarthy for the follow-up to last year's 'Tonight… Franz Ferdinand' album.

"I've been round at Nick's and we've been writing some things, and trying to do things in a different way again," he told 6 Music, adding: "You'll hear it before too long."

Kapranos went on to say that he doesn’t want to give too much about the new album away until it's closer to being released.

"Before the last record I talked far too much about it," he said, "as we had the ideas and I made a vow that I wasn't going to say anything about what we are actually doing until we've done it, and then wait about another three weeks."
