Arctic Monkeys have unveiled a trippy video for new single 'Why'd You Only Call Me When You're High?' – you can watch the promo by scrolling down the page and clicking 'play'.

The video, directed by Nabil, sees a drunk Alex Turner leave the rest of the band behind in a bar to seek out a 4am booty call. As he travels down the road towards the house of the girl he is texting, he is fraught with highly-sexual hallucinations and encounters unsavoury characters.

The track is the latest single to be taken from the band's fifth studio album 'AM', which will be released on September 9 and also features the tracks 'R U Mine?' and 'Do I Wanna Know?'. Guests on the album include Queens Of The Stone Age frontman Josh Homme and former member of The Coral, Bill Ryder-Jones. Turner previously claimed that there was a rap and hip-hop influence on the album, saying one song sounds like Dr Dre.

Later this year, Arctic Monkeys will embark on a nine-date UK tour including a homecoming gig at Sheffield's Motorpoint Arena. Starting in Newcastle at the Metro Radio Arena on October 22, the tour will then visit Manchester, London, Liverpool, Cardiff, Birmingham and Glasgow before ending with the Sheffield gig on November 2. The Strypes will support on all dates.

Arctic Monkeys will play:

Newcastle Metro Radio Arena (October 22)
Manchester Arena (23)
London Earls Court (25, 26)
Liverpool Echo Arena (28)
Cardiff Motorpoint Arena (29)
Birmingham LG Arena (31)
Glasgow Hydro Arena (November 1)
Sheffield Motorpoint Arena (2)
