Arctic Monkeys album update…

Arctic Monkeys drummer Matt Helders has claimed their new album ‘Suck it and See’ is “more mellow” than their last release ‘Humbug’.

Helders also said he hoped the band’s new track ‘The Hellcat Spangled Shalalala’would work well at festivals. “It has got quite a big chorus. Singalong stuff and simple choruses seem to work with a big crowd.”

Helders explained in an interview with The Fly magazine the approach the band took to recording the new album: “we knew what songs were going to be on the record before we even did it. We just recorded the twelve that are on there.”

There has already been debate over the cover of the album, being described as generally either brilliant or lazy by fans. It consists of a plain white background simply with the words ‘Suck it and See’ on the front, in similar fashion to The Beatles famous ‘White Album’.

The album, produced in California, is due out on June 6th.
