Published Apr 05, 2018Arctic Monkeys had been hinting at a new album, and now they have officially announced their latest LP. It's called Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino and it will be out on May 11 via Domino.
The record was produced by the band's own frontman Alex Turner, along with frequent collaborator James Ford (who has worked on every Arctic Monkeys LP except for their first). According to a press release, this 11-track collection "ups the ante in a big way; it is a bold and brilliant album reflecting Turner's ever more comprehensive creative vision."
Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino was recorded during sessions in Los Angeles, Paris and London. It's the band's sixth album overall and their first since 2013's AM.
Arctic Monkeys haven't shared any new material just yet, but the 11-song tracklist can be seen below, and a short trailer (featuring a clip of new music) is at the bottom of the page. The tracklist includes song titles like "The Ultracheese," "The World's First Ever Monster Truck Front Flip" and "Batphone."
