New Arctic Monkeys album!

Quote:
Arctic Monkeys are pleased to announce they will be releasing their as-yet-untitled third album on Monday 24th August 2009.

Produced by Josh Homme in the Mojave Desert and LA, and with James Ford in Brooklyn, the album features ten new Arctic Monkeys songs.

The tracklisting is as follows:

01. My Propeller
02. Crying Lightning
03. Dangerous Animals
04. Secret Door
05. Potion Approaching
06. Fire & The Thud
07. Cornerstone
08. Dance Little Liar
09. Pretty Visitors
10. The Jeweller's Hands

The album will be available on CD, vinyl and via digital download.
I'm as big a champion of these guys as anyone...loved 'em since the fall of '05 when I first heard the demos for songs like "Cigarette Smoke" and "Scummy" (later known as "When the Sun Goes Down"). They kick ass. Alex Turner. Enough said. And Matt Helders is as talented and enthusiastic a drummer as I've ever seen. But you guys already know all that.

The thing is that I can't help but be slightly underwhelmed by this tracklisting. I'm still exceedingly happy that a release date has finally been set but there are only 10 songs...4 of which have already been in circulation (via live recordings) for a while now. I guess it's not really that big of a complaint, whatever. 6 brand new Arc Monk songs in August!!! And I'll be seeing them for the 3rd time at Lollapalooza.

Here are decent live versions of two of the tracks that will be appearing on this thing -



Oh, and I guess there's something to be said about the fact that there are only 10 tracks on here...this band has been awesome so far in their career at giving the fans loads of B-Sides and EP's and things like that. So we should be getting more stuff eventually. If you only know this band based on their two (amazing) full-length studio albums...well then you don't really know them at all.

Crying Lightning:


every album Alex Turner has recorded has gone to #1 in the UK. i'm sure the next will be no different.

I enjoy them once in awhile, Turner's songwriting doesn't blow me away, and they do really fit into that fun rocking British band with annoying singer with strong accent category, but sometimes its fun to rock out to "Fake Tales of San Francisco" or the like.

I'll be interested to hear what they've got for 2009.

Whatever people say i am got a ton of hype, but fav. worst nightmare is one of my most favorite nightmares albums ever. the feel of the whole album is something i've never heard before -- it sounds like an actual nightmare! if you were there, beware might top a certain romance as my fav. arctic song, and the performance on the Apollo DVD is so fucking cool.

I'll be buying this. And I agree with dLP. Nightmares is one of the few albums I consider to be perfect.

I personally love 505. I think that on a whole the album is better from start to finish than Whatever People Say....

The name of the new Arctic Monkeys album is...drum roll please...

 
Humbug


fucking awwwwwesome. i think it works well with the dark and sort of menacing and slower paced tracks we've already heard. also, i guess the guys have been listening to Black Sabbath. Jamie's got a beard and Alex looks really hot with the long hair. rock and roll.

Arctic Monkeys are the first band I ever fell in love with. I have every album, b-side, live-only track and demo available. I have everything the Last Shadow Puppets have released. Alex Turner is a lyrical genius, Helders is nuts on the drums, and the other boys are great too.

I am looking forward to Humbug like you wouldn't believe.

The only problem I have with this album before it comes out is that it only has 10 songs, which means likely it'll be about 35 minutes, which is too brief for an Arctic Monkeys experience in my opinion.

Yeah, I mentioned that in my original post. It really is a bit disappointing that after the long hiatus they're only tossing 10 songs on here. But what are you gonna do? I trust them. Looks like they're going for the whole brevity thing, quality over quantity. We'll see.

Maybe they'll actually have b-sides to their singles.
