*[NME.com] Arctic Monkeys have revealed that they enlisted Queens Of The Stone Age's Josh Homme to sing on their new album. Homme produced some of the band's 2009 album 'Humbug' and has joined the Sheffield band again to sing on their new effort, 'Suck It And See'.
The band told Q that Homme sings backing vocals on album track 'All My Own Stunts'. 'Suck It And See' is out on June 6 and was produced by James Ford in Los Angeles and London.
Frontman Alex Turner said it would be a different-sounding record to 'Humbug'. "We wanted it to be song-based this time," he said. "We used to always try and not go down that route before, because it had been done. But there's a reason why they're the classic structures."
*[pitchfork.com] As they point out on their blog, No Age recently supplied an ominous, droning, fuzzed-out instrumental score to a short video called "Rodarte: States of Matter". In the film, Kate and Laura Mulleavy, the ultra-hip designers behind the fashion line Rodarte, talk about the designs that are currently on display in MOCA's Pacific Design Center. This is the second time No Age have teamed up with Rodarte, as they previously scored their short film "Aanteni". Watch the film below.
