Benedict Cumberbatch - Benedict Cumberbatch Lends Voice To Indie Album

Actor Benedict Cumberbatch has signed up for an unlikely collaboration with British rockers Friendly Fires.

The Sherlock star jumped at the chance to record a spoken-word piece, entitled Flat of Angels, for the band's compilation album Late Night Tales as he is a big fan of their music.

The story, written by the group's author pal Simon Cleary, details the aftermath of a house party in alternating voices.

Guitarist Edd Gibson tells Britain's Daily Star, "You don't consider there are people playing Sherlock Holmes who then remove their make-up to the sound of Friendly Fires - it was a giddy surprise.

"We got a friend to write a story for Benedict to read out on the album."

The collection, due out on Tuesday (05Nov12), also includes tracks by Cocteau Twins and Sbtrkt.
