Fans of Snow Patrol could be facing a long wait before the band's next album - singer/songwriter Gary Lightbody is suffering writer's block.
The group is busy working on a follow-up to 2008's A Hundred Million Suns, but Lightbody is finding it hard thinking up lyrics for their latest tunes.
He tells British radio station Xfm, "I've been having some trouble writing words, little bit of writer's block, but the music is flowing."
However, the star is pleased with the band's new tracks so far: "There are four or five songs that are sounding like singles. Whether they're hits or not is up to the public but they are sounding like things I would hear on the radio."
