The looming fear of a sophomore slump helped take the fun out of the recording process for their second album, You Could Have it So Much better, says Franz Ferdinand. The band says they enjoyed their time in the studio much more this time around, while working on their third effort, Tonight: Franz Ferdinand.
"I got sick of being asked, 'Did you feel the pressure of making the second record after people liked your first record?” said singer Alex Kapranos. “Yes! Gonna stop asking me about it?"
You can listen for yourself to decide whether all that studio fun and low pressure recording time made for a great album. Tonight: Franz Ferdinand goes on sale in the U.S. today. [Source: Angry Ape]
