Alex Turner’s Arctic Monkeys are quite the workaholics, apparently, with a new record every year, or at least that’s what the band makes us think. After the 2006 extraordinary debut, and last year’s “Favorite Worst Nightmare“, the Arctic Monkeys are now preparing to head back to the studio to work on a new album, albeit chances for it getting released in 2008 are very slim. Joining them, however, on the new record is none other then the Queens of the Stone Age frontman and overall badass rock’n’roll star, Josh Homme, from the producer seat, from which he’ll directly supervise the good upbringing of new Monkeys songs. The band will be joining Homme at the Rancho De La Luna, in Joshua Tree, CA, where Josh Homme lives and occasionally records Desert Sessions albums.
He said that it had not yet been determined whether the songs would be released as an album or a single, as they were just experimenting at this early stage.
“I think it’s going to work out great,” said Homme. “They want to submerge themselves in a place that’s the opposite of where they’re from and what they’re used to.
“I think we’re just going to start by doing a couple of tracks. No pressure. The goal is to make something that they dig so much that everyone else can too.”
