U.S. rockers Of Montreal have landed an unlikely collaborator for their new album - R&B star Solange Knowles.
Of Montreal frontman Kevin Barnes has confirmed the I Decided hitmaker will contribute vocals for the band's upcoming project, which is due later this year (10).
And he's hoping that teaming up with Solange will lead to a collaboration with her big sister Beyonce after learning the Halo hitmaker is also a fan of the band.
He says, "Maybe it (a Beyonce collaboration) will happen. I'd love to do it, it would be a fun experience. It's just something she dropped and hasn't really developed. I wonder about it, too, because I don't know how good I am at writing songs for other people.
"When I heard that she (Beyonce) said that, I thought, 'Oh, I should try to get something going!' I started writing this song, and then next thing I know... (the Solange collaboration happened). It's so weird that she would ever in a million years listen to it, let alone record it!"
