Josh Homme has said that the idea that he was behind Arctic Monkeys' change in sound since their debut album is a "misconception."

Homme worked with the band on their third album 'Humbug' and also provided backing vocals on the song 'Knee Socks' on last year's chart-topping 'AM.' However, in a new interview with BBC 6 Music due to air on Sunday (July 13), Homme disputes the idea that he had anything to do with the Sheffield band's evolution.

"I think there's a misconception that I slowed them down or weirded them out when we worked together," Homme said. "They've been playing this dangerous game of changing on every record, reaching like a rock climber for their next grip. I just love them as people."

Earlier this year Homme revealed that his band will record the follow-up to 2013's '...Like Clockwork' later this year, commenting that they have "more than enough songs" for a new LP.

Paramore, Queens Of The Stone Age, Arctic Monkeys and Blink-182 will headline Reading and Leeds Festivals 2014. It will be both Queens Of The Stone Age and Paramore's only UK festival appearances of the summer.
