“Matt Helders came to my house for a cup of Tea and a Jam with me,” Bushell said on Instagram. “We had the best time! We jammed loads of songs together and had a lot of fun improvising drum beats.”

She added: “Thank You so so so much Matt for jamming with me and letting me interview you. You are welcome back to my house for a jam again any time.” She also thanked her guitar teacher Tom McCarthy, who provided backing guitar off-camera.

The collaboration follows Bushell’s solo cover of ‘Brianstorm’ last year. In the last few years she’s also engaged in a drum battle with Dave Grohl and received praise from Rage Against The Machine’s Tom MorelloQueens Of The Stone AgeRoyal Blood and more.
