Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner told NME last week about the band’s latest Big Read, in which he talked about their new album “The Car”, the reaction to their latest album “Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino” and the enduring popularity of their songs. 505″ and “A Certain Romance”.
In another part of the interview, Turner talked about the upcoming Arctic Monkeys stadium tour in the UK and Ireland, saying that the songs from the band’s new album “The Car” are ripe for “hanging out at the stadium.”
It looks like the band will miss out on the top spot in the UK albums chart this week, as Taylor Swift’s new album “Midnights” is selling better than “The Car”.
Next week Arctic Monkeys will appear in a special release Later…With Jools Holland dedicated to their new album.
