Glaswegian lit-rockers Franz Ferdinand haven’t been in the news for a while, but in their official fan magazine, they’ve just let a wee cat out of the bag in the form of some lyrics to a new song. No, they’ve not even played the song yet, but who are we to complain? The lyrics to the song “Lucid Dreams”, planned to appear on the band’s third album, made their way into the latest edition of the band’s official fan club magazine, in the form of notes handwritten by frontman Alex Kapranos.

Fans can sign up to the band’s fan club through the official website: http://www.Franzferdinand.co.uk.  

For fans wanting some actual new songs rather than mere words, words, words, you’ll have to be patient. The follow-up to 2005′s You Could Have It So Much Better is not expected to be released until mid-2008.
