Basement Jaxx star Felix Buxton, 44, has written a song about aliens after catching a glimpse of what he believes was a UFO, outside the band's London headquarters.

The electro musician, who forms one half of Basement Jaxx with Simon Ratcliffe, 47, claims he saw "something very still and glinting in the sky, like light reflecting off a car" through a window of the group's studio near King's Cross in the British capital.

"I saw it from from the studio. It was a bright, sunny afternoon in London and I saw a flying saucer. Luckily I was with someone else at the time, so people can't think I'm barking crazy," he told USA Today.

"For me, seeing that UFO opened my eyes, made me think more about looking for the meaning in things, and thinking about my music and purpose. I believe in ghosts and angels and UFOs. It's up to you if you do, too."

Buxton was so spooked by the encounter that he went on to write a new song, titled We Are Not Alone.

He even mentioned the incident during a talk he gave to students at England's Oxford University and was glad they didn't make fun of his encounter, telling Britain's The New Review magazine: "The students were cool about it - whereas people of my generation tend to get angry when I tell them I saw something I don't understand. It shows how closed-minded people are, generally."

We Are Not Alone features on Basement Jaxx's seventh studio album, Junto, which in Spanish means "together". Junto is available now and continues the Buxton-Ratcliffe tradition of being trailblazers by collaborating with unknown artists from around the world, including Paraguay Recycled Orchestra, a group made up of young musicians who create instruments out of trash.
