Nachdem Franz Ferdinand kürzlich einen exklusiven Song zum Soundtrack des Films 'Hallam Foe' beisteuerten, hat Alex Kapranos Blut geleckt: "After we've finished this album, we're definitely going to look more at doing some other things. Writing for 'Hallam Foe' was a lot of fun. We hear Belle And Sebastian were working on a musical film and possibly I'd like to write a musical too. Who knows? Maybe I'll write one for the stage rather than for film."
Momentan sei die Band aber voll und ganz mit dem dritten Album beschäftigt, wie er erzählt: "We've been recording a couple of songs in the last two weeks. Two down, one more to go. We'll keep on recording until Christmas and will have the album out in the new year." Darauf werden auch ungewöhnliche Klänge zu hören sein: "The strangest instrument we've been using is an old Russian synthesiser built from spare parts in the Cold War. This guy couldn't get synthesisers in Russia but heard about them and decided to build one from what he heard they were like. He used whatever components he could get hold of. It sounds like a normal synthesiser, only a lot weirder."
