Franz Ferdinand are allowing fans an exclusive insight into the recording of their second album - by posting studio films on their website.

The TAKE ME OUT rockers have acquired a huge following and stock of awards since the release of their eponymous debut last year (04), and rather than disappear entirely off the radar for a year, they're planning on keeping internet users up-to-date on the disc's progress.

Their website will host films charting the recording process, as well as a studio diary from the band and the latest videos and pictures.

The Scottish outfit have already spent the last few months in their studio, and plan to finish their follow-up LP in time for an October (05) release.
