Arctic Monkeys Say They’re Open To Collaborating With Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker

Written by Tom Williams on August 8, 2018

Arctic Monkeys have revealed they are open to collaborating with Tame Impala mastermind Kevin Parker, after the Australian muso said he’d “absolutely” be receptive to teaming up.

Speaking with Matt Wilkinson on Apple Music’s Beats 1 on Tuesday, Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner said, “I’d love to float with Kevin… Let’s float Kev.”

When asked by Wilkinson, “Is that an ask for Kev?”, Turner said, “Yeah I just said it twice — I’d float with Kevin.”

Asked about what his band’s next recording sessions might be like, Turner said, “Hopefully Kevin would be floating in there somewhere.

“I think he’s brilliant, no doubt about that.”

Turner’s comments come after Parker praised Arctic Monkeys’ latest album Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino, which features contributions from his Tame Impala band member Cameron Avery.

If you cast your mind back to 2014, you might also remember that Arctic Monkeys covered Tame Impala’s ‘Feels Like We Only Go Backwards’ for triple j‘s Like A Version. It wasn’t quite a collaboration, but it could be an indication of how the two acts’ sounds might blend.
