Nandi Bushell is taking her cover game up a notch with help from Arctic Monkeys drummer Matt Helders.

The 11-year-old musical prodigy, who went viral last year thanks to her drum battle with Dave Grohl, has shared a cover of the Monkeys’ early single, “I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor,” with Helders on drums.

The cover, which you can watch now via Bushell’s Instagram, is the first video in a four-part series, which will also include performances of the AM tunes “Brianstorm” and “R U Mine?”, as well as an interview and an “improvisational jam” with Helders.

“Matt Helders came to my house for a cup of Tea and a Jam with me,” Bushell says, punnily. “We had the best time! We jammed loads of songs together and had a lot of fun improvising drum beats.”

Bushell’s other big-name fans include Rage Against the Machine‘s Tom Morello, Muse‘s Matt Bellamy and Metallica‘s Kirk Hammett.
