Arctic Monkeys announce new album “The Car”

Author Flavia Andrade - 25.8.2022

Arctic Monkeys will release their new album, entitled “The Car”, on October 21. The band’s seventh studio album features ten new songs written by Alex Turner, produced by James Ford and recorded at Butley Priory, Suffolk, RAK Studios, London and La Frette, Paris.

Following 2018’s “Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino”, “The Car” finds Arctic Monkeys running wild in a new and sumptuously orchestrated musical landscape and contains some of the richest and most rewarding vocal performances of Alex Turner’s career.
The deluxe LP will be available on limited grey vinyl with a tip on sleeve and mounted gloss cover image via the AM Official Store. An exclusive, custard coloured LP will be available at independent record shops and HMV stores. “The Car” will also be available on standard LP, CD, cassette and digitally. You can pre-order the album here.
