Today, Arctic Monkeys have announced that their new album, The Car, will be released on October 21st.
The Car is the band’s seventh studio album, and features ten new songs written by the band’s Alex Turner, produced by James Ford, and recorded at Butley Priory, Suffolk, RAK Studios, London and La Frette, Paris.
Following 2018’s Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino, The Car finds Arctic Monkeys running wild in a new and sumptuous musical landscape and contains some of the richest and most rewarding vocal performances of Alex Turner’s career.
The deluxe LP will be available on limited gray vinyl with a tip on sleeve and mounted gloss cover image via the AM Official Store. An exclusive, custard colored LP will be available at independent record shops. The Car will also be available on standard LP, CD, cassette and digitally. You can pre-order the album here.
