Arctic Monkeys debuted new track 'Arabella' at Zurich Open Air Festival.

It was the first time the band have played the track live. 'Arabella' is taken from their forthcoming album 'AM'. You can watch the band perform the song by scrolling down the page and clicking 'play'.

'AM' is set for release 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.

In next week's issue of NME (available from Wednesday, September 4) , we speak to the Arctic Monkeys about their fifth album. We went into their studio as they rehearsed their new material – including 'Arabella' – and discovered that frontman Alex Turner plans to put down his guitar for the band's live shows so that he can dance around more.

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)
