Rapper Angel Haze recently revealed that she’d “love” to collaborate with The Smiths. Speaking to The Quietus, Haze – who released her ‘Classick’ mixtape last month – said that she fancied working with the sadly now-defunct Mancunian legends in the future.

Asked about her dream collaborations, she replied: “I like The Smiths – I would love to do a song with The Smiths, because they are so sonically different. And they just go into that little rampage where they’re just super fucking loud and noisy and I think it would be really cool. I don’t know, I’ll guess I’ll save that for some kaleidoscope theory I have.”
