Franz Ferdinand Pleased Their Album Leaked Online

LATEST: Scottish rockers FRANZ FERDINAND are pleased their highly anticipated second album has been leaked on the internet, because it will mean fans at live shows know the words to the new songs.

YOU COULD HAVE IT SO MUCH BETTER... WITH FRANZ FERDINAND was first spotted on the internet on Saturday (10SEP05) despite concerted efforts by the band's record label to keep promotional copies out of the hands of pirates.

Copies sent to reviewers were titled 'C Drive Back-Up' in a bid to disguise the CD's contents from casual observers - but the Scottish rockers have still followed in the footsteps of COLDPLAY and SIR PAUL McCARTNEY by seeing their new material being traded for free weeks before it is officially released.

But singer ALEX KAPRANOS remains unfazed: "People will know the new songs when we play shows."
