Indie bands having a change of direction makes us happy, so the fact that Arctic Monkeys have teamed up with rapper Dizzee Rascal on the B-side to their forthcoming single Brianstorm makes us doubly so.
The Mercury prize-winning rapper, whose new album Maths and English is out in March, features on the song Temptation Greets You Like Your Naughty Friend. You can get your hands on it when the single is released digitally on 1 April and on CD and vinyl on 16 April.
Rap and indie - does it work?
