Scottish rockers Franz Ferdinand have been heavily influenced by rapper Kanye West whilst writing 14 new songs for their third album.

Frontman Alex Kapranos, 33, promises a new sound on the next record, inspired largely by the songs the band have been listening to recently.

He says, "NICK McCARTHY (lead guitarist) and I have been working on a bunch of new songs.

"They are a lot grander - less spiky. I've been listening to Kanye West and Amerie's 1 THING.

"That's what some of the new stuff is sounding like.

"(I wish things were) like they were back in the Sixties, when bands were almost required to release an album every six months.

"Now, you make a record, and it sits around for months while marketing campaigns are devised."
