Oli Sykes and co sparked rumours they were set to release a collaboration with the Grammy winner, when the frontman commented "limousine" on the 'Lunch' hitmaker's social media post.

However, he has now revealed he has no idea if she ever listened to the rough copy.

AURORA ended up adding her vocals to the final version on their latest LP, 'POST HUMAN: NeX GEn'.

Speaking to Daniel P. Carter on the BBC Radio 1 Rock Show, Oli spilled: “The Billie thing was just: her photographer’s a massive fan, and they kinda mentioned the idea of her doing a song.

“So I her sent ‘liMOusIne’. And this was quite a while before it was in its full, finished state. I mean, I can’t say for 100 per cent that she listened to it, but I knew it got to her.

“So me thinking that ‘liMOusIne’ wouldn’t mean anything to anyone but me and maybe her if she saw the comment, [I] left it on her Instagram, not thinking that a week or two later when we did the tour, we put the file names on our visuals live, and everyone connected it.

“It was one of them things that seemed like such a proper cheap way to try and get some press, but it really wasn’t. I was actually quite embarrassed when I found out – like, ‘Oh god, no!’ Because I knew the chance of Billie doing a song with us was slim to none.”

BMTH's album was much delayed but they surprised fans by dropping it with hours notice last week.

They were previously forced to push back the follow-up to 2020's 'Post Human: Survival Horror', which was originally set for release on September 15, 2023, due to "unforeseen circumstances".

Then, in December, it was announced that programmer and keyboardist Jordan Fish - who was instrumental in their evolved sound - had departed the group.
