Speaking of the collaboration, Hawley told NME how easy it was to team up with Alex Turner. He said: "I went to see [Arctic Monkeys] when they were in Sheffield the other day and said, 'Fancy getting up with us?' He said, 'Yeah.' It's not complicated.

Hawley bolstered his set with a smattering of cover versions including Elvis Presley's 'Crawfish' and 'Hushabye Mountain' from the 1968 movie 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.'
Yet it was Alex Turner who provided the biggest surprise of the night when he debuted two new unnamed songs in addition to acoustic versions of 'Fluorescent Adolescent', 'Secret Door' and 'Cornerstone'.
The Mencap Little Noise Sessions continue tomorrow with a headline set from Lostprophets.
