So much for Franz Ferdinand making the greatest pop album of all time: “FRANZ FERDINAND’s bid to go pop has gone bust after they scrapped pricey sessions with GIRLS ALOUD’s producer.” There’s still hope, because they’re now working with the guy who wrote Kylie Minogue’s “Slow,” but surely I’m not the only one hoping that these sessions “mysteriously” leak out to the Internet?
