Spoken World Album Due

Arctic Monkeys' mainman and workaholic Alex Turner is set to release a recording of him reading a short story on October 13th, it has been announced.

Details are emerging around the recording of the story, which is entitled "The Choice Of Three". The story was written by Alex Turner, and will appear on a compilation co-ordinated by fellow Arctic Monkey Matt Helders, which will be released through the "Late Night Tales" compilation.

The new compilation will be a mixed affair and reflects Helders' eclectic DJ sets, best showcased at a recent Clash event in Barcelona. Alex Turner's piece will close the album, and begins with the following:

"In the tunnel I noticed I had a choice of three. While I thought it very kind of them to offer me this I do wonder if they realised what a dilemma they were sending to face me. The trouble was if I looked at your reflection in the left window I missed the actual image of you and your reflection in the right, and if I looked at the right I had the same problem the other way around."

Matt Helders' "Late Night Tales" compilation will be released on October 13th.
