Alex Turner loves country
Alex Turner of the Arctic Monkeys has made an exceptional revelation that will surprise many of his fans – he's a fan of country music.

The singer-songwriter of one of the UK's most famous bands revealed that he got into country music while recording the band's fourth studio album.

Music lovers who downloaded a copy of Suck It and See will know that there was no influence of the genre on the band's sound – Turner just likes listening to it.

"I started getting into country music which is something I've never gone anywhere near until quite recently, like I never understood it before," Turner told Central Queensland News.

"I know I'm never going to write a country tune, that just wouldn't work, but for that reason I can draw something from it...The sound doesn't speak to me but the lyrics do."

The frontman has recently being sporting a fifties look with a quiff and leather jacket combo.

Earlier this month the band said they would let Miles Kane join the band if he asked.
