I'm convinced that when (not if, when) I meet Alex Turner he'll fall madly in love with me and we'll get married and live happily ever after with one or two very attractive children.
Anyway, yeah, I really love the Arctic Monkeys. I've seen them live 7 times and I'm going to see them in Newcastle this Saturday (eeeeek!!!!), and on my birthday (in February) I'm going to see them in Paris. So stoked for that — it's going to be a blast, I'm sure... in the prettiest city in the world, drooling over the prettiest guy in the world with my girlfriends! Oh wow. I can't wait.
I love all of the albums. If I were to put them in order of preference, with my favourite first, it would be this: WPSIATWIN, Suck it and See, Favourite Worst Nightmare and then Humbug. My ex always loved Humbug the most... maybe that's why our relationship didn't work out!

Though there are certain disappointing aspects of the last album and tour in general, I've liked almost all of the B-sides they're releasing. They seem like the little gift to fans that they weren't allowed on the actual album. Though, they all seem to have similar sounds.
Here's the new video:

R U Mine?


Funny how Alex puts his new girlfriends into his videos.

Over them, it sounds like a bad Queens of the Stone Age imitation.

Would like to see a picture of Alex's tattoo.

I know I'm going to sound like an idiot, but I think they should all just forget they're famous, move back to Sheffield in a tiny little flat together and get back to writing honest, poetic, witty and wonderful music. They have improved since Humbug though

^ I know what you mean, they have certainly let fame go to their heads. But good on them I guess, they worked really hard for it and I know Humbug and Suck It And See didn't receive as great a reviews as the first two albums but they're still good, I think. Their music has matured but by doing so, has lost a bit of the charm and cheek that they were known for...I think that makes sense? I still love them loads though.

I'm laughing inside of me at the irony of this song, these are exactly the lyrics of my life right now...

Kind of like the song too.

So psyched for this. Glad to see they included R U Mine. Such a great song. The John Cooper Clarke interpretation should be interesting.

Quote:
Arctic Monkeys release their fifth album, entitled 'AM', on Monday 9th September 2013.

'AM' was produced by James Ford and co-produced by Ross Orton at Sage & Sound Recording, LA and Rancho De La Luna, Joshua Tree. The album was engineered by Ian Shea and mixed by Tchad Blake.

Josh Homme, Pete Thomas and Bill Ryder-Jones all make guest appearances on 'AM' - as do the words of John Cooper Clarke, on the track, 'I Wanna Be Yours'.

The album will be available on CD, Vinyl, special edition vinyl and via digital download. You can pre-order 'AM' via Arctic Monkeys Store or Domino Mart.

Tracklisting for 'AM' is as follows:
1. Do I Wanna Know?
2. R U Mine?
3. One For The Road
4. Arabella
5. I Want It All
6. No. 1 Party Anthem
7. Mad Sounds
8. Fireside
9. Why'd You Only Call Me When You're High?
10. Snap Out Of It
11. Knee Socks
12. I Wanna Be Yours

This is a great buildup for the new record, gives clues about what some of the songs are about, sounds fantastic:
