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: â€œWeâ€™re already writing some new tunes. Weâ€™ve got a practice room set up at Ally Pally and weâ€™re writing some new tunes. weâ€™ve got two or threeâ€¦ Yeah I think weâ€™ll play one of them soon live.â€
â€œThen weâ€™ll see how many songs weâ€™ve got together but weâ€™re talking about going into the studio at the end of January.
â€œWeâ€™re popping over to Australia and New Zealand at the end of January as well, as you do. Itâ€™s brilliant, Iâ€™m looking forward to that. We get to miss the Scottish winter, which is not a bad thing at all.â€
