Primal Scream rocker Bobby Gillespie discovered his supermodel pal KATE MOSS could sing on a drunken train journey between London and Paris.

The HIGHER THAN THE SUN singer was so impressed, he asked her to duet with him on Primal Scream track Some Velvet Morning.

Bobby says, "My girlfriend works for (designer) Alexander McQueen and we were going by train - with Kate - to a fashion show in Paris.

"When I heard how good a singer she was I said, 'Wouldn't it be good to do a duet some time?' Kate thought it was an amazing idea.

"She's got the innocence of someone like Jane Birkin, a really psychedelic sounding voice."

And Bobby admits he's hoping to persuade Kate to join him onstage on the band's forthcoming British tour.

He says, "Can you imagine the reception Kate would get if she walked onstage? It would blow everybody's minds."
