New Arctic Monkeys live video of ‘The Ultracheese’ released by Austin City Limits

Austin City Limits has released a new video of Arctic Monkeys’ live performance.

The song is taken from Arctic Monkeys sixth studio album Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino which was released in May last year. Written by band frontman Alex Turner on a Steinway Vertegrand piano from his Los Angeles home, the album signalled yet another change in direction for this ever developing Sheffield band.

Taking part in a session for TV show Austin City Limits, Turner and Co. ran through a six-song setlist which which will be officially aired on January 19th. Of that set, the Monkeys played ‘Crying Lightning’, ‘One Point Perspective’, ‘Star Treatment’, ‘Knee Socks’ and ‘R U Mine?’.

“Enjoy an hour of modern rock with Arctic Monkeys and Wild Child,” the forthcoming show review states. “Sheffield’s Monkeys perform songs from their acclaimed album Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino. Austin’s Wild Child plays cuts from their latest album Expectations.”

As a taster, the show has released ‘The Ultracheese’ early.
