After the sheer brilliance of 2013’s ‘AM,’ you can forgive the Arctic Monkeys for taking an extended hiatus. From the opening bars and quite brilliant graphics of opening song and single, ‘Do I Wanna Know,’ the listener knew they were in for something very special. Managing to mix Alex Turner’s ebullient lyrics with a rock star vibe, wrapped in 70’s disco chic, ‘AM’ was a tour de force to say the least. Currently, little is known about what the Monkeys are up to. All that has been revealed thus far, is the band have been recording music together in a secret location. How very exciting!
Do not be surprised to hear an announcement from the Arctic Monkey’s camp in the near future. With speculation hotting up over who will be headlining the big festivals in 2018, it wouldn’t be surprising to hear their name at the top of 2018’s most wanted list.
