Glasvegas' Rab Allan has let slip on Facebook that his band were in talks to collaborate on a track with Lady Gaga.

The guitarist posted 2009 YouTube footage of the 'Bad Romance' singer being asked who she would love to team up with. In the video, Lady Gaga responds to the question by saying: "I love Glasvegas from Scotland." You can watch the video below.

A friend of Allan then commented below the link telling him to "set up" a collaboration, to which Allan replied: "It nearly happened a while back. Funny story."

The guitarist went on to reveal that Gaga sent the band a photo of herself wearing a leather jacket, sunglasses and a quiff and asked if she could be Geraldine – the protagonist from 2008 single of the same name.

The Glaswegian band are set to take a break from recording and mixing their third album for a seven-date tour of the UK, which kicks off at Manchester's Academy 3 on December 3. The band will then stop off in Newcastle, Inverness, Aberdeen, Glasgow, Dundee before finishing up in Dumfries.

Glasvegas will play:

Manchester Academy 3 (December 2)
Newcastle O2 Academy 2 (3)
Inverness Ironworks (5)
Aberdeen Garage (6)
Glasgow Garage (8)
Dundee Fat Sam's (9)
Dumfries The Venue (10)
