Kaiser Chiefs – World Cup song decision

Band speak out on football song rumours

Kaiser Chiefs have said they have no plans to write the official England World Cup song.

Over the weekend the group were said to be in the frame to follow the likes of New Order and Spice Girls to record the official tune which will soundtrack England’s visit to Germany in the summer.

A spokesperson for the Football Association told the News Of The World that they’re “not ruling the Kaiser Chiefs out”. However, the band are!

A statement reads: “We’re flattered about these rumours regarding the England football team’s World Cup song, but there’s no truth in them, they are just rumours. The only writing we’ll be doing in the next few months will be for our next album. We have no plans to write the England football team’s World Cup song. Sorry to dispel the myth.”

This year’s World Cup takes place in Germany in June and July.
