Australian website watchoutfor.com.au recently interviewed the Arctic Monkeys bassist.

About Suck it and See, he said:

I think it’s gone really well. It probably got received better than Humbug did I think because I suppose it was a bit more pop than maybe no. 3 [Humbug] was.  Everyone seems to be enjoying the new songs when we play them live and singing along and everything. So yeah, like really sort of positive response to it.

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.
