Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner has revealed all about a possible collaboration between Matt Helders and Girls Aloud’s Sarah Harding.

Speaking exclusively to NME.COM at this year’s Shockwaves NME Awards, Turner joked that studio time was already booked.

He said: “Sarah and Helders are going to do a collaboration. We’ve booked studio time. It’s going to be a bit electronic.


“They’d have good single covers. He’d have a white shirt on and a pencil tie. Probably not a pencil tie…They could have a good look.”

Turner also revealed that they had planned to dress up in fancy dress for our awards, recreating their BRIT acceptance speeches, but decided against it at the last minute.

He said: “We were gonna dress up and turn up as the Village People but Cookie (Jamie Cook) bottled it. He was like: ‘No I wanna wear my new cardie’.”

Turner also revealed that he wasn’t entirely sure where the Brian character from new single ’Brianstorm’ came from.

He said: “I don’t know if he were in my imagination or not. It’s a black spot….”
