Following the lounge-y, piano-led Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino, Arctic Monkeys are continuing to experiment with their sound on their upcoming album, The Car. However, at least one The Car song hearkens back to the vibes of the English group’s guitar-heavy 2013 record, AM.
Speaking to Dutch radio station NPO 3FM, Alex Turner shares that The Car track “Sculptures of Anything Goes” reminds him of the “desert-ier side of the AM record.”
“It feels like there’s still a bit of that dust in there,” Turner adds.
Still, Turner feels that “Sculptures” takes Arctic Monkeys into new directions.
“We haven’t really been to that place, I don’t think, before, sonically,” he says.
You’ll be able to hear for yourself when The Car drops October 21. The album also includes the previously released songs “Body Paint” and “There’d Better Be a Mirrorball.”
