Franz Ferdinand's Secret Songs

Franz Ferdinand are determined to keep their new album a secret.

The Scottish rockers are currently working on the follow-up to 2009's 'Tonight: Franz Ferdinand' but frontman Alex Kapranos is concerned he will "spoil" the record for fans if he talks about the direction their material is taking.

He explained to BANG Showbiz: "There's a couple of songs we're working on but we're still writing.

"It's too early to say what it's about and also, with our last record, I shot my mouth off a little bit too much and said too much about it before it came out, so I'm keeping my mouth closed this time and not spoiling the surprise, I think that spoils it, so it's best to stay quiet."

However, the 'Take Me Out' hitmaker revealed he has been speaking regularly with fellow Scot Edwyn Collins, hinting he may be collaborating with the 'Girl Like You' hitmaker.

He added: "I went round to Edwyn Collins' place and he's working on a record, it's very cool. We haven't decided if we'll record with him or not yet, but wait and see."
