English rockers Arctic Monkeys are teaming up with Girls Aloud for an unlikely collaboration, following the female group's duet with Sugababes.
The manufactured girl group's collaboration with Sugababes, a cover of WALK THIS WAY to raise money for the Comic Relief charity, is released in the UK on Monday (12MAR07).
Arctic Monkeys stunned fans when they admitted they liked the pop sound of Girls Aloud last year (06), when they began covering their hit LOVE MACHINE at gigs.
Girls Aloud bandmember SARAH HARDING says, "The big tip is we're going to collaborate... I love these boys. They've got a strong future ahead of them."
Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner adds, "Matt Helders (Monkeys' drummer) and Sarah are in Rockford Studios, that's how it's going to work. Down in Wales for two weeks.
"I've got a backing track ready for us. It won't take two weeks, two days."
