The Sheffield band confirmed their return on Thursday (April 5), announcing that sixth album ‘Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino’ is due for release on May 11, available to pre-order now on the band’s official store.

The record was produced by James Ford and frontman Alex Turner, recorded in Los Angeles, Paris and London.

A press release states that the band “explore new musical terrain” on the record and that it “ups the ante in a big way”. It’s been called “a bold and brilliant album reflecting Turner’s ever more comprehensive creative vision”.
