Arctic Monkeys filmed their Manchester Apollo show up close and personal
Arctic Monkeys have confirmed Queens Of The Stone Age singer Josh Homme is working with them on their third album.
Frontman Alex Turner said the singer is producing songs for the follow-up to Favourite Worst Nightmare.
The singer revealed the collaboration at the London premiere of the Brit-award winners' new live DVD.
He said: "We've been recording the new album with Josh Homme. It's been going really well but it's still early stages at this point."
Homme recently revealed he had entered a studio in America with the band to produce some songs.
The Sheffield band attended the Rex Cinema on Monday to promote Arctic Monkeys At The Apollo which was filmed on the last night of their world tour in Manchester in December 2007.
Captured in super 16mm film, much of the 76 minute concert is shot close up, behind and in front of the band as they perform tracks from their debut and second album.
Very few crowd shots are used throughout the film, which was directed by the IT Crowd star Richard Ayoade, and you only ever really get hear the audience when they sing along to When The Sun Goes Down.
We'd never seen ourselves play before either so it was a good way of keeping some sort of memory

"The reason we didn't show the crowd was because I feel in live concerts when you see the audience you're sort of weirdly orientated," Ayoade explained.
"The way I filmed it felt much more immediate and it felt like you were watching the band. I think anytime you show someone in the crowd having a good time is depressing. You just go, 'OK I wasn't there'."
When asked by Newsbeat why the band chose to film a gig at the Apollo ahead of their Lancashire County Cricket Ground concerts in the city last summer, Turner said: "We chose this gig because we were just thinking about making a film really.
"The big gigs at the cricket ground in the summer weren't as suitable in terms of where you could set up cameras and stuff like that.
"So I thought it were important to create an arena where you could just film it well."
The band also said they decided to shoot the gig later in their career because they were worried it would have looked bad if they had done it earlier.
Bassist Nick O'Malley said: "We decided to do it now because we had a second album out, so we had enough songs to put it on a DVD.
The film is set to be screened in various cinemas on 14 October
"We'd never seen ourselves play before either so it was a good way of keeping some sort of memory."
Drummer Matt Helders added: "If we'd done it earlier we might have looked back and thought that were crap.
"But then we'll probably look at this in a year and think we could have done it better."
The film is set to be screened in various cinemas on 14 October before it is released on DVD on 3 November.
