ORIGINAL STORY: It’s finally happening: Arctic Monkeys have announced their highly anticipated sixth album Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino, which will be released in May.
Produced by Zack London and frontman Alex Turner, this is the band’s first release since 2013’s blockbuster AM, and they’ve spent the past few years recording in Los Angeles, Paris and London.
Today’s announcement follows some huge speculation after a few band members allegedly told fans details about the album which turned out to be true. Alex Turner told a fan the band had new stuff coming “soon” back in March, and drummer Matt Helders told another fan that the album would be out in May.
Arctic Monkeys are also embarking on a huge festival tour in 2018 which has a suspiciously Splendour-sized hole in it, and this album announcement would tie in perfectly with a headlining slot.
Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino will be released on Friday, 11th May. Peep the album trailer, cover art and tracklist below.
