Arctic Monkeys have claimed that their decision to record their fourth album 'Suck It And See' in California hasn't affected their sound.

The band were speaking to NME in a new video interview - watch it by clicking above.

Singer Alex Turner said: "As long as it's us four, it doesn't matter where we go to record, it always has that thread."

He added that the seeds of the album were still sown in the UK.

"We started writing as soon as we finished touring last summer," he said. "We then had the summer to write and then we put it all together in London in a couple of weeks last year."

The album was produced by James Ford, who did production work on their 2009 third album, 'Humbug'. The new record features a guest backing vocal spot from Queens Of The Stone Age's Josh Homme.

Arctic Monkeys are on the cover of the new issue of NME, which is on UK newsstands tomorrow (April 6) or available digitally.
