Kasabian guitarist Serge Pizzorno has revealed his three-year-old son Ennio has named a song on the rock group's upcoming new album

Serge Pizzorno's three-year-old son has named a song on the new Kasabian album.

The 33-year-old guitarist has revealed his son Ennio - his child with partner Amy - is a fan of the band and has been helping him with their eagerly anticipated fifth LP.

Serge said: "He's got a really strong opinion. If any cheesy sh*t comes on he's instantly like, 'This is rubbish, turn it off.' He's massively into our stuff. He's named a song on the new album, 'Bumblebee'."

Ennio came up with the title because the track has a buzzing noise on it similar to the sound the honey-making insects make when they fly.

Speaking to Q magazine, Serge explained: "There's this buzzing sound on it and he was asking me about it all day long, 'Put busy bee on, put busy bee on'. I thought, 'I'll have that'. I changed it a bit; Busy Bee's not quite as cool as 'Bumblebee'."

Serge - who is joined in the band by singer Tom Meighan, bassist Chris Edwards, guitarist Tim Carter and drummer Ian Matthews - is predicting that 'Bumblebee' will be one of the LP's most popular tracks because it's a heavy song that should send the crowd wild when played live.

He said: "It's Beastie Boys dub with a sort of Zeppelin, Rage Against The Machine chorus. It's got the flavour of a bank robbery getaway car. Everything drops to barely nothing and then the f***ing hand of God slams the door. It goes 'click' and then its like, 'Get out the way!' You'll be able to see the moshpit from space."


The lairy indie combo have headlined T in the Park and Glastonbury with their tried-and-tested piledriving electro-rock anthems.
