Arctic Monkeys Appear To Prank Fans In New Album Promo Picture

Arctic Monkeys Appear To Prank Fans In New Album Promo Picture

Finally, after five long years of listening to AM on repeat, Arctic Monkeys fans have some brand-new material to binge on. Not only that, but they've also announced a huge UK tour - which is now sold out.

They've uploaded a picture of themselves looking mega chilled, except for guitarist Nick O'Malley - who appears to have slyly trolled fans with 'The Circle Game' hand sign.

We're not sure whether it was an intentional joke, but O'Malley can be seen pulling the cheeky gesture while the rest of the band pose for the shot.

Only a few seemed to pick up on the move, with most people just ripping the band for their new tunes.

The tough thing with putting out incredible albums, like Arctic Monkeys have done in the past, is that many fans expect you to do the exact same thing again and again.

A lot of people are comparing the album to the music of David Bowie - but making it into an insult. If I produced something and people said it sounded anything remotely like the 25-time award winning artist I would be pretty proud TBH.

There's no doubt that Tranquillity Base Hotel & Casino is different from their other stuff and one question people keep asking is why Alex Turner swapped his guitar for a piano for the album.

Are Arctic Monkeys Gearing Up To Announce Homecoming Dates In Sheffield?

He's told BBC Radio 1: "The guitar had lost its ability to give me ideas. Every time I sat with a guitar I was suspicious of where it was gonna go. I had a pretty good idea of what I might be which is completely contrary to what I felt when I sat at the piano."

Turner added to the Sydney Morning Herald: "I've written loads of songs on that guitar, but then I reached a point where I knew the types of moves I always tend to make on the guitar. So I scurried off towards the piano and started to look for ideas there."

NME's review hits the nail on the head, saying: "[The album] will reward deep-diving listeners - in particular those with an interest in picking apart Turner's densest and most self-aware lyrics to date.

"The album's title is a fitting one: this record feels a lot like gazing into the night sky. At first it's completely overwhelming - you'll be trying to connect the scattered dots on this initially impenetrable listen, and maybe even despairing when it doesn't all come together.

"But when the constellations show through, you'll realise that it's a product of searingly intelligent design."
