Last month, Matt Helders spoke about the Sheffield band’s upcoming new album, saying that musically it “picks up where ‘Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino’ left off”. The band have yet to officially announce the follow-up to their May 2018 album, but new music from the band is expected to arrive this year given that Monkeys are heading out on tour in August.

“It kinda like picks up where the other one [‘Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino’] left off musically,” Helders said. “I mean, it’s never gonna be like [2012 ‘AM’ single] ‘R U Mine?’ and all that stuff again, you know, the heavy riffs and stuff. But there are riffs in there and [it’s] a bit more up-tempo, even though it’s not loud,” he added. “It’s hard to explain!”

After it emerged in August 2021 that the band had been recording new music in Suffolk, Helders told BBC Radio 5 Live in November that Arctic Monkeys “always do try and do something a bit different” with each release.

Asked if the new album was “ready to go”, Helders replied: “Yeah, pretty much, yeah. It was a bit disjointed how we had to do it, and there are bits to finish off, but yeah, it’s all in the works.”
