Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner has revealed he would like the band to return to their hometown of Sheffield when they begin work on a new album.
“It would be nice to record in Sheffield, which we haven’t done for a while,” he said. “I was living in New York, and that’s where I wrote a lot of those songs, and the fact that me and the other chaps were on either side of a large body of water – I wrote a lot on acoustic guitar in the flat. Then we went and applied to it what we thought they needed, which is not really a way that we worked before.”
Turner also discussed the direction of the new material, and said the heavier sound apparent on ‘Suck It and See‘ tracks such as ‘Don’t Sit Down ‘Cause I’ve Moved Your Chair‘, and recent stand-alone single ‘R U Mine‘, is likely to be the blueprint.
“I think we’re going to go the direction of those heavier tunes,” he continued. “We did ‘R U Mine’, and I think that’s where it’s going to be at for us for the next record. We feel the strength of the last record is ‘Don’t Sit Down…’, the other songs like that – ‘Brick By Brick’ – the other side of it is fine, but I don’t know how much more of that we can do.”Just Published:
