Richard Hawley has hinted that he and Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner are set to work together again soon.

Speaking after Turner had joined him onstage to perform Arctic Monkeys track 'Only Ones Who Know' at London's Union Chapel last night (November 19), Hawley admitted that he likes the idea of hooking up with the frontman.

Though he remained coy about the exact details of a possible pairing, Hawley told BBC 6Music: "Well, we are gonna, you know... I really want, um... I'm not saying. No, I'm not! I'll get shot."

Hawley also spoke about how well he gets on with Turner.

"We're not best mates but I know him enough to know that he's a solid kid, a gentle bloke, and funny," he said. "I enjoy his company. They're all top lads, little monkeys."

Turner has long been a fan of Hawley, and when Arctic Monkeys collected their Mercury Music Prize in 2006 for 'Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not', he stated that the former Pulp member had "been robbed" of the award.
