The Chemical Brothers

The Chemical Brothers want to collaborate with Noel Gallagher on his solo album.

The dance duo have worked with the rock star on two tracks - 'Setting Sun' and 'Let Forever Be' - and have also remixed songs for Oasis and insist they are ready to help him now he has left the band.

Tom Rowlands said: "It's up to Noel, we won't force ourselves upon him. But, obviously, we'd be up for it if we got the call, he's a great musician. It would be churlish not to see what the man had to say and what his ideas were."

The 'Hey Boy Hey Girl' hitmakers have also moved away from their electro roots to work on a film score for Joe Wright's new movie.

Tom admits it was great to be asked to contribute to the film - which is believed to be 'Indian Summer', which is based on the book 'Indian Summer: The Secret History of the End of an Empire' by Alex von Tunzelmann - because it's a new challenge for him and bandmate Ed Simons.

Tom added to BANG Showbiz: "We're working on some music for Joe Wright's new film as well. He's got a movie coming out next year and we're working on the score for that. The music is going to be contemporary and it's heavy, it's brilliant. It's something different and exciting that we've been offered. It's fun to be able to do something that's completely different. When we work together to make music to play live or DJ with there's a different mindset to when a director says I've got this scene and I'm trying to communicate these feelings. It's interesting it makes music varied and fun."

The Chemical Brothers have also written and produced some music for Darren Aronofsky's new film 'Black Swan', which stars Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis as ballet dancers in a New York production of 'Swan Lake'.
