Not very hardcore I know, but have you ever or would you ever consider doing a duet with anyone in a completely non-Disney kind of way?

I would pay very large sums of money to hear you with the following for instance:

Regina Spektor
Missy Higgins (who? http://www.missyhiggins.com)
Ellie Goulding
Amy Winehouse (via the magic of whatever the video equivalent of photoshop is)

Anyone else got any suggestions ?

yeah sure. i have a long-term dream of singing a song with Loudon Wainwright III. also (fact fans) there was another song on Love Ire & Song once, which has never seen the light of day (because the computer fucked the files while we were recording and i've never got round to doing it again). it's a duet song, written to be sung with Florence (who in the intervening time got too cool to sing with me, hm). Ciara Haidar recorded a vocal on it. It was called "old flames". I think it was quite good. hm.

I can see tomorrow's NME headline already "Turner: Florence is too cool to sing with me"

And then a highly extrapolated article from this forum post.

talk about 6 degrees of separation. 3rd result down from this LW3 search was Florence and the Machine.

Any chance of bringing her out on tour again Frank? She was rather splendid from what I remember.

Does the Jon Snodgrass album not count?

Wasn't there talk of doing something with Billy Bragg, or did I imagine/dream it?

How in the hell have I never listened to her before? Awesome.


and to stick on topic, I count this as a duet/the equivalent for three...

Let's hope a Loudon Wainwright collaboration might sometime come to happen, I can't imagine a better idea!

I'm actually quite gutted about this. A duet between the two of you would be really awesome - if her duet with Billy Bragg of Fairtytale in New York is anything to go by.
