That Franz Ferdinand story, then...

Gigwise - who do say they heard it on Newsbeat - have more detail about the Franz's abandonment of their sessions with Brian 'Girls Aloud producer' Higgins:

"We learned a little bit from his methods. We wrote with him for a while and initially we thought we'd work more with him on the album but it didn't really work out.

"We just realised that we're not really a pop group. We're just a band that happens to cross over into the whole pop sphere."

The new album remains on course for October - or earlier, if it looks like leeking onto peer-to-peer.
