Franz Ferdinand Champion Downloading

The following was originally published by Contact Music. This is a direct crosspost:

Franz Ferdinand frontman Alex Kapranos is confident legal downloading will shake up the music industry - because lazy pop and rock stars will no longer prosper.

The Take Me out singer thinks choosy fans will stop buying records just because they like certain acts, and start purchasing the songs they like instead.

He says, "I like the idea that, because of downloading, people are gonna buy songs only if they are good.

"It means lazy bands aren't going to get away with giving you the one hit single and an album full of filler."
