Queens Of The Stone Age frontman Josh Homme has claimed that he will be producing the third Arctic Monkeys album.

The band are expected to join Homme at his basecamp just outside of LA, the Rancho De La Luna studios in Joshua Tree.

“We’re gonna do some tracks and I’m really looking forward to it, cos I like them a lot,” Homme told 6 Music at the weekend. “Being Arctic Monkeys, the polar opposite would be Desert Monkeys, so they’re gonna come out and just experience that, and their idea is to submerge themselves in something else and do some tracks.

Alex Turner and his bandmates have long been fans of Homme’s work, and the heavier direction of “Favourite Worst Nightmares” was ascribed to their love of the Queens.

The two bands became friends after playing a show together in the States last year.

“They’re a talented bunch of guys,” said Homme. “It’s gonna be a lot of fun.”
