Professor Green reveals unlikely collaboration plans

Professor Green has revealed that he has several collaborations in the pipeline, including an unlikely hook-up with masked rockers Slipknot.

The 'I Need You Tonight' star, who has just finished an Australian tour with Jessie J, told The Sun’s Bizarre column that ideas for working with other artists ‘come naturally:’

“We met Sid Wilson, the DJ from Slipknot, out here. He told me he was a big fan. How mental is that? So we were talking and he's going to send some stuff over.”

The 28-year-old rapper, who has previously recorded tracks with the likes of Example, Maverick Sabre and Lily Allen, also announced that he is set to team up with Lana Del Rey songwriter Justin Parker on the follow-up to second album, At Your Inconvenience, as well as reuniting with ‘Read All About It’ guest vocalist Emeli Sande:

“She's amazing to work with. We've already started on a couple more bits for my next album which I want out next March or April.

"Collaborations are like a relationship. You can meet someone you're attracted to, end up in bed but you might not be compatible. Putting two artists in a studio doesn't mean it will work. You have to work it out first.”
