Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner has discussed the possibility of a sequel to the band's hugely successful new album 'AM'.

Speaking in this week's NME, which is available digitally and on newsstands now, Turner says he already has an idea for the record, mentioning the fact that a similar idea led to the creation of 'AM'.

"I think I can see there being something," he says. "I can't really confirm or deny that one. I can sort of imagine what it might be. I could see it when the record was finished. We'd met the deadline, but the thing was still sort of snowballing a little bit, and for that reason, we could still find ourselves walking into another one."

Admitting that any potential project is in its very early stages, the frontman continues: "The songs aren't there, it's just an idea of mine. But that's usually how it works: this time the idea definitely led the whole procession, rather than the songs themselves."

Last week, meanwhile, Arctic Monkeys announced that they will play two huge outdoor shows in London's Finsbury Park on May 23 and 24 next year, with support to come from Tame Impala, Miles Kane and Royal Blood, and will also headline Portugal's Optimus Alive festival, which takes place in Lisbon on July 10.
