New single of Arctic Monkeys

arctic monkeys

(From The Guardian) Having sprinted into the spotlight in 2005 with two breakneck singles that both topped the UK singles chart, Arctic Monkey’s last two albums – 2009′s dirgy and hard-to-love Humbug and 2011′s slightly better Suck It And See – were both announced with slower, swampy lead singles the band dumped on iTunes the day after they were premiered on the radio.

To herald their forthcoming, as-yet-untitled fifth album, they’ve taken this rejection of the normal single release strategy one step further by simply plonking a brand new song online with little fanfare and allowing fans to purchase it from iTunes immediately.

The song in question is Do I Wanna Know?, which once again veers away from the frenetic urgency of their early singles in favour of a more creeping, groove-lead crawl.

Over a dusty guitar riff and a drum beat that starts out almost like a glam stomp, Alex Turner proves that years spent living in America haven’t completely smoothed out his Sheffield accent, relishing the line “summat in your teeth” in the first verse.

Unlike the singles from the last two albums, it’s also not afraid of a huge chorus, the song almost reaching Bond theme levels of epic as a multi-tracked Turner croons “crawling back to you” as the guitar riffs open out.

Do I Wanna Know? is out now.
