Turner told The Toronto Sun:
You know, I’d love to do something with Josh Homme again. He obviously produced most of our last album (Humbug in 2009). I’d love to get back in the studio with him at some point. The whole experience with him was really inspiring — and fun as well, which is important. When you spend as much time in dark rooms as we do, it helps if it’s with somebody who makes you laugh and is a good bloke. So that definitely didn’t suck.
He also talks about his current preference to the studio instead of touring:
As time goes on and we’ve been in the studio a lot more, we’re perhaps more comfortable in that environment than we were in the beginning. We sorta know what we’re doing a little bit more. So yeah, I really love being in the studio now these days. But I think we’re still very much a live band and a touring band.
