Arctic Monkeys release new single on iTunes


Arctic Monkeys have unveiled the first taste of new material which will make up their forthcoming fifth studio album.

In a similar move to the approach taken ahead of the release of ‘Suck It and See‘ in 2011, with little prior fanfare the Sheffield band have immediately made the track ‘Do I Wanna Know?‘ available as a download on iTunes whilst simultaneously uploading a video to YouTube (below).

The track was first debuted live during a gig in California recently, while new cut ‘Mad Sounds‘ was handed its own premiere at the Hultsfred Festival in Sweden last week.

Back in March, drummer Matt Helders gave BBC Newsbeat an update on the new album, declaring: “Hopefully we’ll get it out this year – that’s the plan.”

“We’ve just been working stuff out with the band. Nothing serious yet. It’s just been us four working stuff out like we used to I guess. We had a bit of a break. It’s always weird when you first get back into it to know what kind of songs we write any more.”
