The 'Vlad the Impaler' rock group are preparing to record their fourth album, and singer Tom Meighan promises it will have a strong sense of melody - with one track in particular moving their dance-rock sound in more of a disco direction.
He told Q Magazine: "There's a lot of soul in it. It's the most melodic record we've ever done. There's all sorts of things on there. Dare I say there's a tune which sounds a bit like the Jackson 5?"
The band's main guitarist and songwriter, Serge Pizzorno, added he reckons the band will take fans by surprise with how different some of genre-hopping new tracks sound.
He said: "There's going to be a couple of things on the album that, like 'Emotional Rescue' by the Rolling Stones, are just something that's just a bit cheeky.
"It won't sound old or disco or anything, it'll just be really f***ing cheeky, so people go, 'what the f**k's going on here? I wasn't expecting that.'"
Kasabian's fourth album will be released in late 2011.
