Arctic Monkeys’ Pair New Look with New Sound on ‘Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino’ (New Music Friday)

When Arctic Monkeys announced their new album, Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino a few weeks ago, the title was intriguing. So, too, was the fact that the hugely successful British rock/indie band would be premiering no songs ahead of its release (save for a few live performances), as well as their decidedly different visual aesthetic.

The band performed “Four Out of Five” on the Tonight Show Thursday evening:

Well, the album was released on Friday and it’s another eclectic and experimental addition to the band’s versatile catalog of music. Front man Alex Turner opens the record’s first track, “Star Treatment,” with the line “I just wanted to be one of the Strokes/Now look at the mess you’ve made me make,” which catches your attention right off the bat … and things progress from there.
