Josh Homme to produce Arctic Monkeys:

Here's something interesting that I found at The Guardian's website.

Josh Homme to produce Arctic Monkeys:

The Queens of the Stone Age frontman looks set to turn up the volume on the Sheffield band when he takes over production duties for their forthcoming third album. Maybe they'll start sporting metal haircuts too …

Sheffield's Arctic Monkeys are forgoing the rain and wind and heading to the California desert to record songs for their third album. Perhaps they'll call it I Bet You Look Good On The Sand Dune. Perhaps not.

The news comes from the unlikely lips of Josh Homme, frontman for Queens of the Stone Age. "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," he told BBC 6 Music.

Homme will be producing the sessions at Rancho De La Luna studios in Joshua Tree, as he has done for Mark Lanegan and PJ Harvey. But whereas Lanegan and Harvey's recordings were made as part of Homme's collaborative Desert Sessions series, the Arctic Monkeys' sand-blown songs are destined only for their own albums – and will not likely feature any extra musicians.

"I don't think there's any reason to bring anyone else in," Homme said. "I think they just want to experience something that's opposite to what they're used to [in the UK] and it's a good place to go to ... make some music for the sake of making music."

Arctic Monkeys have often voiced their appreciation for Queens of the Stone Age, and the two groups shared a bill in Texas last year.

"We're all into Queens of the Stone Age," drummer Matt Helder told the NME in a recent interview. "When we got to play with them and see them live it gave us a kick up the arse ... They show you can still have top tunes and loud, heavy songs, too. It's a lot more fun playing loud music - simple as that."

Though the Monkeys aren't planning a switch to heavy metal, they seem likely to turn up the volume a bit – or at least to get tougher haircuts.
