Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner enjoyed success with his mate and fellow musician Miles Kane and producer James Ford when they released brilliant album 'The Age of the Understatement' as The Last Shadow Puppets in 2008.

With Arctic Monkeys taking things easy since releasing 'A.M.' in 2013, it looks like Turner may have turned his attentions to that album's long-awaited follow-up.

Speculation is rife since collaborator Owen Pallett - who arranged the strings for their debut - tweeted that he was working on a record that used the hashtag #tlsp2.

The tweet has since been deleted but read 'That rare and thrilling moment when the record you're working on crosses the threshold into Classic Status #tlsp2"

According to NME, neither Turner nor Pallett have responded to a request for comment.
