Sleigh Bells have admitted they have no idea if their collaboration with Beyonce will ever see the light of day.

Guitarist Derek Miller, who recently teamed up with Diplo and the singer in the studio, said it was fun to work with the star but said he was unsure what will come of it.

He was speaking before the band's sold-out Shockwaves NME Awards Show at London's Heaven last night (February 14).

"I actually have no idea if the collaboration will ever be released," he told NME. "Beyonce works with whoever she wants to work with, probably 30 or 40 producers. It's a totally different world from what I'm used to. So for me it's just exciting to hear something that I worked on but I can't really say any more than that."

Miller added that he thought "it was amazing" that Beyonce is due to headline Glastonbury in the summer, and said it would be a dream to perform onstage with her.

"We'd love to but I'm sure that'll never happen," the guitarist laughed. "She's a world class performer and she's at the top so is she going to perform with us? I don’t think so."

"That'd be like a dream for us because we're huge fans," singer Alexis Krauss said. "We were actually joking earlier that we'd bump into her there and she'd go, 'You were the troublemakers that started this whole thing off'."

At the show the pair performed tracks from their 2010 debut album 'Treats', with Krauss enjoying a stage dive during 'Crown On The Ground'.

Sleigh Bells played:

'Infinity Guitars'
'A/B Machines'
'Riot Rhythm'
'Straight A's'
'Rill Rill'
'Tell 'Em'
'Crown On The Ground'

The Shockwaves NME Awards Shows continue in London tonight (15). The Naked And Famous play Heaven, while Isobel Campbell and Mark Lanegan headline the O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire with Cherry Ghost supporting.
