Superstar producers The Neptunes are set to work with British rockers THE DARKNESS - by remixing their mega hit I BELIEVE IN A THING CALLED LOVE.

Pharrell Williams and CHAD HUGO, who also release their own material as rap group N.E.R.D., have already collaborated with Justin Timberlake, BRITNEY SPEARS, Jay-Z and Usher.

Now they've set their sights on the spandex-clad sensations.

Hugo explains, "The Darkness are total geniuses. I am a real fan. A lot of people compare The Darkness to Led Zeppelin, but to me they're more like Queen, but with respect.

"They're not taking it too seriously so the crowds let it slide and everybody's happy."
