Drummer jokingly hints at solo album

Video: Arctic Monkeys - 'Rock N Roll Is The Best Form Of Music'

Arctic Monkeys' drummer Matt Helders has jokingly made it known that he wishes to release a solo album.

The band were speaking to NME at V Festival where they played at the weekend and were joined onstage by Miles Kane, click above to watch the video.

When asked where they wanted to be in five years, Helders said: "Doing my debut record, or celebrating four years since I've done my debut record."

Helders has previously done backing vocals for the band and most recently taken the lead for the track 'Brick By Brick'. The drummer also curated an album as part of the 'Late Night Tales' series in 2008.

On that album he covered the Livin Joy dance anthem 'Dreamer' with vocalist Nesreen Shah.

During the interview Alex Turner also spoke about being one of few guitar bands on the weekend's bill. He said: "It not like you make a plan want to play V Festival and save rock and roll, but it's cool that you get a guitar band, because not many play it.

"I'm sure a lot of people who saw us play in the arenas would see us here."
