Alex Turner shocks viewers with new look as Arctic Monkeys debut ‘The Ultracheese’ on ‘The Late Show With Stephen Colbert’

Band recently dropped the video for the title track to their new album

Alex Turner has completely changed his image – shaving his head for The Late Show With Stephen Colbert – check out his makeover below.

An image of the singer performing on the show with his new look was posted last night (July 23) with the caption: “Woah, check out the haircut on ! fans, what do you think??” .

Arctic Monkeys also debuted ‘The Ultracheese’ – the final track from ‘Tranquility Base…‘ – live on the show last night (July 24) in black and white. Check out the video below.


It comes after the band yesterday unveiled the video for the title track to ‘Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino’.

The latest clip continues with the same Kubrick-esque sci-fi aesthetic and style, showing Turner in the fictitious hotel.


The song includes the lines: “Good afternoon / Tranquility Base Hotel and Casino / Mark speaking / Please tell me how may I direct your call?

Earlier this month, the band performed at Madrid’s Mad Cool Festival. Reviewing the show, NME wrote: “The Monkeys’ set seemed calibrated to prove that despite the polarised critical reaction to most recent album, their new songs can easily match up to the greatest hits of their back catalogue.”

During a recent show in France, Arctic Monkeys also performed an Elvis Costello cover, after it was revealed that the musician had undergone cancer surgery.
