Arctic Monkeys finally reveal details of sixth album
Arctic Monkeys have announced their new album, Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino. The follow-up to 2013’s AM is out May 11 via Domino. The new album was co-produced by longtime collaborator James Ford and frontman Alex Turner, and recorded in three cities: Los Angeles, Paris, and London. (This album marks the first time Turner has co-produced an Arctic Monkeys full-length.) Find the tracklist, album trailer, and festival dates below.
The news comes as no surprise as last month Turner told a fan to expect new music from the band “soon” meanwhile drummer Matt Helders reportedly told a fan in a Sheffield takeaway that the album will be released in May.
The Sheffield band had already announced details of a world tour which you can see details of below, which includes a date at Glasgow’s TRNSMT Festival which remains their only planned UK date at this point. Check out their summer schedule below.
