Meanwhile, Arctic Monkeys’ divisive sixth LP ‘Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino’ has recently been named the best-selling vinyl album of 2018. The band sold 38,000 of the record, which was also confirmed to be the fastest-selling vinyl of the last 25 years.


In other news, Matt Helders has taken on the role of producer on Milburn frontman Joe Carnall’s upcoming solo album.

The drummer has also been speaking about his own upcoming solo record, saying he wants to “make a lot of music” first to justify its existence.

“I’ve got a little studio set up at home now that, when I’m there, I can commit some time to,” Helders said. “That’s basically old drum machines and synthesisers – a bit more electronic and a bit more like soundtrack-y, like a John Carpenter kind of thing.

“I think I’m getting to a point now in which the style has developed and what I want to do is more clear to me than it was before.”
