Arctic Monkeys say new album was influenced by David Bowie and Nick Cave - video Arctic Monkeys Tickets
Band tell NME about the writing process of 'Suck It And See'
The band were speaking to NME in an exclusive video interview – watch it by clicking above.
Frontman Alex Turner said: "I wanted a good song foundation on this one, so that meant listening to Nick Cave, John Cale, Lou Reed, [David] Bowie, Leonard Cohen. And then as it went in and we put it through the mill of the band, other influences came into it, but I started with that to try and craft songs better."
Drummer Matt Helders also discussed the feedback he's had based on his lead vocal on 'Brick By Brick', saying: "It's been good for me. I've enjoyed every comment that I've seen." When pressed for his favourite comment he'd read he said: "'You sing like a crow'. I don't know if it were intended to be a compliment, but I took it as a compliment."
