Franz Ferdinand have revealed that they are due to start work on their third album in January.

The bloody hard working Scots have already got a few new tracks written for the long-player and are eyeing up an early January slot to do some work in the studio.

Alex Kapranos told xfm: “We’re already writing some new tunes. We’ve got a practice room set up at Ally Pally and we’re writing some new tunes. we’ve got two or three… Yeah I think we’ll play one of them soon live.”

“Then we’ll see how many songs we’ve got together but we’re talking about going into the studio at the end of January.

“We’re popping over to Australia and New Zealand at the end of January as well, as you do. It’s brilliant, I’m looking forward to that. We get to miss the Scottish winter, which is not a bad thing at all.”
