has said that the idea that he was behind Arctic Monkeys
' change in sound since their debut album is a "misconception."
notes, Homme worked with the band on their third album "Humbug
" and also provided backing vocals on the songs "Knee Socks
" and "One for the Road
" on last year's chart-topping "AM
." However, in a new interview with BBC 6 Music
due to air on Sunday (July 13), Homme disputes the idea that he had anything to do with the Sheffield band's evolution."I think there's a misconception that I slowed them down or weirded them out when we worked together,"
Homme said. "They've been playing this dangerous game of changing on every record, reaching like a rock climber for their next grip. I just love them as people."
Earlier this year Homme revealed that his band will record the follow-up to 2013's "...Like Clockwork
" later this year, commenting that they have "more than enough songs"
for a new LP.
