Arctic Monkeys: studio update

Alex Turner and co are set to hit the recording studio this week

Arctic Monkeys are set to hit the studio this week to begin the recording of their third album.

The band were set to head into the studio sometime over the summer, and it has been confirmed that they will now begin sessions this week.

They decided to bring the sessions forward after being inspired when they all met up at Glastonbury festival a few weeks ago (June 27-29).

According to The Sun, Alex Turner and co will spend two weeks in a Gloucestershire studio, which they have customised to their liking.
