The band played the song at two Scandinavian festivals this weekend

Arctic Monkeys debuted a brand new track at two Scandinavian festivals this weekend (June 14/16).

The band premiered the song 'Mad Sounds', which is likely to appear on their forthcoming new album, at Hultsfred Festival in Sweden on Friday and again at the Danish NorthSide festival on Sunday – watch fan-filmed footage of the track below.

Introducing the track towards the end of their headline set on Sunday, frontman Alex Turner told the audience that they were going to "break things down, just a bit," with a few slow tracks, and joked that they should "keep warm by cuddling or something like that".

'Mad Sounds' follows the reveal of new track 'Do I Wanna Know' at a concert in Ventura, California, last month, which was the opening number for both of their Scandinavian gigs. Arctic Monkeys will headline Glastonbury later this month (June 28) with The Rolling Stones and Mumford & Sons.
