Arctic Monkeys want to collaborate with Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker

"I’d love to float with Kevin… Let’s float Kev.”

Arctic Monkeys have revealed that they’re keen to work with Tame Impala frontman Kevin Parker, after the Australian singer previously admitted that he would “absolutely” be up for joining forces.

Speaking to Beats 1’s Matt Wilkinson, Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner admitted: “I’d love to float with Kevin… Let’s float Kev.”

When further asked by Wilkinson, “Is that an ask for Kev?”, Turner replied, “Yeah I just said it twice — I’d float with Kevin.”


He also brought up the prospect of a Tame Impala collaboration when asked what the band’s next studio recordings might sound like.

“Hopefully Kevin would be floating in there somewhere”, he admitted.

“I think he’s brilliant, no doubt about that.”

The very same interview also saw Turner admitting that a follow-up to ‘Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino’ could emerge a lot sooner than expected.

 You know, again I don’t know, we’ve not quite reached a conclusion on what we’re gonna do but, I’d like to, yeah”, he said of a rapid follow-up.


“Maybe just for the reason that, I’ve really been enjoying playing this one on the road and that excitement of playing together could lead to jumping back in the studio. Whereas, like when we made this Tranquility Base one, that wasn’t coming off the back of a tour.

“I remember we nearly did [go back into the studio] after AM, there were a moment where we were just like, “Let’s go and do another thing and keep going!” I’m glad we didn’t now but there was definitely an urge there to do that.”
