Haim Turned Down Spot On New Arctic Monkeys Record


Haim have admitted that they had to turn down the chance to appear on the new Arctic Monkeys record AM.

According to NME the sisters were supposed to feature on Do I Wanna Know? but couldn't fit the appearance into their schedules.

"We tried to push things around to make it work," bass player Este Haim told NME.

"But when it came down to it, we had to finish our record... That would have been our biggest dream come true - to sing on an Arctic Monkeys record... It was one of the most painful calls to say no. Maybe the worst day of my life."

Haim's much anticipated debut album Days Are Gone is due out September 30.
