Not every day you get a legend praising you, is it?
''Josh Homme has revealed that he wanted to work with Arctic Monkeys after falling in love with their lyrics.
The Queens Of The Stone Age frontman co-produced the Sheffield band's third album 'Humbug', even recording some parts with the band out in the Mojave Desert in California.
Speaking about why he opted to produce a band Homme told the US edition of GQ that it was frontman Alex Turner's words that first got his attention.
"I was sucked in at first by the lyrics. Alex sounded like a rare poet playing music – he has a special gift for the gab," explained Homme, who then singled out Arctic Monkeys' Matt Helders as "one of the best drummers in rock 'n' roll".
Speaking about the record the producer explained that 'Humbug' – released on August 24 – sees the Sheffield band experimenting.
"This is the record where they get weird, grow up and trip out," he declared.''
