Eagles Of Death Metal singer/guitarist Jesse Hughes is working on a solo album.

The impressively moustachioed frontman told BBC 6music that the album, his first as a solo artist, would be named 'Boots Electric Fabulous Weapon'.

He has been recently going under the nickname 'Boots Electric' after formerly being referred to as 'The Devil'.

Hughes said he had some rather ambitious production wishes for the album. "I'm trying to work with Dr Dre and my dream job of all time would be to work with [Outkast's] Andre 3000," he said. "But I'll probably end up working with someone at K Mart."

Eagles Of Death Metal played at the Reading And Leeds Festivals last weekend (August 28-30). Watch a video interview with Hughes backstage at the Leeds bash by clicking on the right.
