Arctic Monkeys record in haunted studio

Alex Turner says recording sessions feature ‘Elsie’

The London studio where Arctic Monkeys are recording their new album is haunted, according to the band.

Alex Turner told Rolling Stone that Miloco Studios is inhabited by the spirit of a girl.

Turner said: “It’s said that a young girl, ’Elsie’, haunts the chamber, and unexplained faint whispers have appeared on recordings in the past.”

’D Is For Dangerous’ and ’Fluorescent Adolescent’ are among the the new songs the band have recorded for the follow up to their 2006 LP ’Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not’.

The as-yet-untitled album is set to be released in May, and Turner says it will not be a huge stylistic departure from their debut.

He explained: “There’s also a bit of organ on there, but nothing to worry about.”
