Modest Mouse are working on their new album with Outkast's Big Boi.

The rapper - real name Antwan Patton - unveiled details of the hook-up in a series of posts on his Twitter page, Twitter.com/BigBoi.

He revealed that producer Chris Carmouche, who worked on Outkast LP 'Speakerboxxx/The Love Below', was also involved in the sessions.

"Me and @mouche1 in the studio workin with Modest Mouse on their new album Turnt up ! Shout out to Issac [Brock] and the crew!," Patton wrote.

He later added: "Been camped out in the Lab with Modest Mouse all week, workin on the new Mouse LP, coolest cats ever. Long Live The Funk."

Modest Mouse's last album was 2007's ' We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank', which featured former Smiths and Cribs guitarist Johnny Marr.

Meanwhile, Big Boi revealed last year that he's started the new Outkast album with cohort Andre 3000.

He hinted that the material - the Atlanta duo's first since 2006's 'Idlewild' - will be rush released, stating they will "spring" new material on fans.
