The new Arctic Monkeys album is called 'Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino', and it's out next month
We told you. We did. Arctic Monkeys' much anticipated sixth album - titled 'Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino', is set to arrive on 11th May.

The news first broke via a rogue Amazon listing, before iTunes Japan gave us artwork and a full tracklisting. You can check that out below.

There's also an official trailer for the record, with a snippet of new material. You can check that out below.



Produced by James Ford and Alex Turner, the album was recorded in Los Angeles, Paris and London. A press release claims the record "finds the band intent on continuing to explore new musical terrain with each album. ‘Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino’ups the ante in a big way; it is a bold and brilliant album reflecting Turner’s ever more comprehensive creative vision."

Until today, Arctic Monkeys have been mostly teasing their new record through fan selfies in chip shops - most recently suggesting it'll be with us next month, which looks set to be pretty solid info. More bands should do their press through fast food establishments.

Arctic Monkeys are set to play TRNSMT later this summer. The band have already confirmed runs in Europe and the US, too, 'FYI'.
