Richard Hawley has recorded an album with US guitar icon Duane Eddy.

The 72-year-old legend was introduced to Hawley after the Sheffield singer-songwriter's manager randomly met one of Eddy's relatives in London, reports BBC 6 Music. After the duo hit it off they set about heading into the studio in Sheffield along with his backing band.

"It was surreal," Hawley explained of the recording process. "We wrote 18 pieces of music in 11 days, and it was like a real sort of blast through."

He added that he was initially surprised that Eddy had even heard his music. "Apparently uncle Duane drove around Nashville in his Cadillac listening to my music," he said. "Which is bonkers!"

Hawley did not say when the album is likely to be released.
