Nick Hodgson, the former drummer, vocalist and lyricist for Kaiser Chiefs, has been working on a song with Olly Murs and Preston for Olly's new album.

Olly Murs has collaborated with former Kaiser Chiefs star Nick Hodgson.

The 'Trouble' hitmaker paired up with the the former drummer, backing vocalist and lyricist for the 'I Predict A Riot' rockers - who now works as a producer and song writer at his Chewido studios in London - after being introduced by The Ordinary Boys frontman and former 'Celebrity Big Brother' star Preston, who has been writing for Olly since he was runner up on 'The X Factor' in 2009.

Nick told the Daily Star newspaper: "I've known Preston since the Kaisers supported The Ordinary boys when we started out.

"He phoned to see if I fancied writing with them, and it was an interesting idea.

"We got a great song out of it."

The 36-year-old musician - who parted ways with the Kaiser Chiefs in 2012 - confessed that although Olly, 29, has a very different style, he enjoyed working on the song for the pop heartthrob's new album.

He added: "I hadn't met him before, but I liked Olly a lot."

Olly has previously stated that his new album is to be released this summer.
