The long-awaited full-length album is a follow-up to 2018’s ‘Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino‘ album. This album also comes with songs with a space-age theme. And accompanied by avant-garde style music and piano-based songs.

The new and upcoming album has been recorded by Butley Priory in Suffolk, RAK Studios in London and La Frette in Paris. In the time since Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino, Arctic Monkeys have shared the B-side “Anyways,” performed for Austin City Limits, and released a live album to support charity in the city’s Royal Albert Hall. Arctic Monkeys are playing several previously announced festivals all over the world.
During a new interview with Big Issue, Alex Turner talked about Arctic Monkeys upcoming album and concerts:
He reveals so many things in this interview.
“On this record, sci-fi is off the table. We are back to earth. I think we’ve got closer to a better version of a more dynamic overall sound with this record. The strings on this record come in and out of focus and that was a deliberate move and hopefully everything has its own space. There’s time the band comes to the front and then the strings come to the front.
He also added working with band members is “pure instinct”.
You have to follow your instincts in the same way you did in the first place. It’s a response I’ve had to other things we’ve composed. This idea of something sounding ‘cinematic’. I never completely subscribe to it, but it’s louder this time.”
