The Kills also gear up for tour with The Raconteurs

The Kills discuss Arctic Monkeys collaboration
The Kills frontwoman Alison Mosshart confirmed that she recently recorded a song with Arctic Monkeys' Alex Turner, but said she is unsure of its fate.

She said the collaboration came about because their bands know each other, and Turner had some music he thought would suit her voice well.

"It was a really fun thing," she told NME.COM. "(Turner) had these songs he thought would be appropriate for me to sing on. We recorded it a while ago but we've both been so busy so I don't know if it'll come out."

The Kills, who recently played the Lollapalooza festival, are gearing up for a tour across North America with The Raconteurs.

"Oh my God, I can't wait to tour with The Raconteurs," Mosshart said. "It was really fun playing with them at festivals in France and Spain. We've known Meg and Jack (White) for a really long time, probably for the entire time we've been The Kills. So it'll be a really fun tour."

The jaunt with The Raconteurs kicks off in Portland on September 16, as previously reported.

Meanwhile, The Kills are set to appear on Live From Abbey Road with The Fratellis, which airs on the Sundance Channel in the US this Thursday (August 14).
