Arctic Monkeys have announced details of a new b-side single that is set for release next month, as well as releasing a new documentary.
After releasing sixth album ‘Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino’ in May, it’s now been confirmed the eponymous track will be released next month. In an exciting addition to the 7″ single, it’s been confirmed that the b-side will feature ‘Anyways’, a previously unreleased track.
“After spending a year documenting Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino I wanted to try and pull it all together in a short film. I spent a few weeks with the band in France documenting the recording process with my 16mm camera in September 2017. At that point I was still only hearing bits and pieces of the tunes as they were being recorded. Nearly a year later, I was on stage with them in Lyon France, shooting some of those same tunes. When the film came back from the lab I put the live songs next to my shots of them recording and found it to be quite nice. With that as a starting point, I then used James Ford’s instrumental mixes of the album and I put an assortment of the images we created for this album overtop, giving a glimpse into the last year and the full progression of Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino.” – Ben Chappell
