Arctic Monkeys are releasing a new album, The Car, on October 21 via Domino. Now they have announced a 2023 North American tour, with Fontaines D.C. as the support act. We hope you like to plan ahead however, as most of the shows are next September, almost a year away. The general onsale starts this Friday, October 7, at 10 a.m. local time, with various presales.

Previously Arctic Monkeys shared The Car’s first single, the string-backed ballad (and album opener) “There’d Better Be a Mirrorball,” via a video for the song directed by frontman Alex Turner. “There’d Better Be a Mirrorball” was #1 on our Songs of the Week list. Then they shared its second single, “Body Paint,” which also made our Songs of the Week list. Then they performed “Body Paint” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

The Car is the follow-up to 2018’s Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino. It’s the band’s seventh album and all the songs were written by frontman Alex Turner. James Ford produced the new album, which was recorded at Butley Priory, Suffolk, RAK Studios, London, and La Frette, Paris.

A previous press release described the album like so: “The Car finds Arctic Monkeys running wild in a new and sumptuous musical landscape and contains some of the richest and most rewarding vocal performances of Alex Turner’s career.”

The deluxe LP version of the album, only available from the band’s website, will be available on “limited gray vinyl with a tip on sleeve and mounted gloss cover image.” The album will also be released on standard LP, CD, cassette, and digitally.

Arctic Monkeys’ complete lineup is Jamie Cook, Matt Helders, Nick O’Malley, and Alex Turner.
