Franz Ferdinand have begun working on new material in Scotland, to put towards a new album. It will be their fourth full length release and the follow up to 2009's Tonight: Franz Ferdinand.
"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 said and laughed, "You'll hear it before too long," said singer Alex Kapranos when speaking to BBC's 6Music.
This time though, the band will stay on the quiet side until the album comes out.
"Before the last record, I talked far too much about it 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."
