Death Grips to produce new music with 'Shrek' director Andrew Adamson

Having tweeted an image of Adamson in the recording studio, what are Death Grips planning for their next release?

While the band are known to use their social media to take the piss - random images, strings of memes - this could be one of the most intriguing things they've sent out to the public in a while.

Andrew Adamson, the director and mind behind Shrek - the film that aimed to take shots at traditional fairy tale films and franchise before becoming one itself, appears to have taken up music on the side. Pictured working in the studio, is he narrating or singing? Laying the plot for the album?

It's all caused much bemusement as fans googled to see who this new musician was, before realising who Adamson really was. What does the man who created one of the biggest films - with the largest amount of memes - have to do with an experimental hip-hop group? But when phrased like that, it could be a perfect collaboration between the two. With two creative forces with the fine-tuned ability to mock, tease and create something people love at the end of it, this will create a very interesting outcome.
