Franz Ferdinand are "clapping bones together" to create sounds for their upcoming third major studio album.

"We had this skeleton in a box that just ended up sitting in the corner of the studio ... and decided to experiment with it."

Each band's member chooses a different part of the body to play on the record. "Nick, our guitarist, had the hands and was clapping the bones together. Paul, the drummer, was working with the pelvis bone and a femur. We put the teeth in a glass jar and rattled that about," Alex explains further. "We smacked the ribs together and we got this really weird, f***ed-up kind of a sound that was wicked. I can't think of any records with human bones on it."
