Hawley responded to the question of their possible link-up on NME radio by leaving a pause before: "Can you hear the silence? We'll see, we'll see."
The former Pulp and Longpigs guitarist, one of the UK's most critically acclaimed singer-songwriters of the past decade, has previously suggested a project with Turner was on the horizon. In November Turner joined Hawley on stage to perform the Monkeys' 'Only Ones Who Know' at London's Union Chapel, a show where Turner was Hawley's support act.
There is a continuing mutual respect between the two, with Turner proclaiming Hawley was "robbed" of the Mercury Prize in 2006 when Arctic Monkeys picked it up for 'Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not'.
Meanwhile, Hawley has been quoted as saying of Turner, "We're not best mates but I know him enough to know that he's a solid kid, a gentle bloke, and funny. I enjoy his company. They're all top lads, little monkeys."
