Former Spice Girl Melanie CHISHOLM is aiming for a rockier sound on her next album - by teaming up with Franz Ferdinand's production team.

The NEVER BE THE SAME AGAIN singer is "finally" recording the kind of music she has "always wanted to do" with the assistance of the studio whizzes behind the Scottish band's eponymous debut album.

Mel says, "I'm finally doing what I've always wanted to do. I'm gonna really rock out this time."
