Franz Ferdinand scrap collaboration with Brian Higgins
Posted at 9:42 PM, 25 May 2008 -

Brian Higgins won't be producing Franz Ferdinand's new album. The band has announced that they have parted ways with the producer and will now recruit Dan Carey (who's worked with artists such as Kylie, Sia, Lily Allen and Róisín Murphy).

"We spent a week or so with Brian and it was wonderfully stimulating. He's a real maverick. It was inspiring but it didn't work out completely in the end.", Alex Kapranos said. "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 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.", Paul Thomson revealed.

Last year Xenomania produced Franz Ferdinand's cover version of David Bowie's "Sound and Vision" for a Radio 1 40th anniversary album (Radio 1: Established 1967) with Girls Aloud doing backing vocals.
