Alex Turner to guest on Tony Christie album

Alex Turner is set to make a special guest appearance on Tony Christie's forthcoming album.

Christie, who had a recent hit with a re-release of Is This The Way To Amarillo, is recording a Sheffield-themed album in tribute to his home town and has asked the ARCTIC MONKEYS frontman to help out.

The crooner has also enlisted the hep of fellow Yorkshiremen Richard Hawley and former PULP singer Jarvis Cocker

"We've been looking at songs from Sheffield so I asked Hawley 'Is there anything from the Monkeys'?" Christie told NME.

"I'm going to look at doing 'Only Ones Who Know'. Alex has told Hawley he's up for it and he'll pop in."

The new album is due for release in October.

Elsewhere, Alex's side project the LAST SHADOW PUPPETS have said that their next single is on the way – Standing Next To Me will be released on July 7th.
