The fourth album from Sheffield scoundrels Arctic Monkeys is still unannounced, but a new video was posted by the band today.
“Brick By Brick” features drummer Matt Helders on lead vocal, according to antiquiet. It continues the journey into early 70’s AOR begun with Humbug, and features a clip with an appropriately retro feel:
Like the break at 1:43. Overall, a suitable enough teaser. We’ll see if this actually ends up on the album, reportedly titled Jack Turner, The Only Turner Worthy Of The Name and being recorded with James Ford of Simian Mobile Disco.
The album is in fact called Suck It And See. “Brick By Brick” does make the cut as you can see from the track list below. Look for a June 6 release date.
