Arctic Monkeys’ Entire New ‘AM’ Opus Is Streaming Right Now
Sheffield songsmiths' new album is 12 tracks of glam-kissed rock
Arctic Monkeys’ fifth album AM handily made SPIN’s 50 Fall Albums That You Gotta Hear. Well, the summer is sticking around for a few more weeks, but the iTunes is streaming the full Josh Homme-helped LP right now. The 12-track set was produced by longtime collaborator James Ford and songwriter Ross Orton (M.I.A., the Fall, Roots Manuva).
Heretofore, we’d heard a handful of tracks — “Do I Wanna Know?”, “Mad Sounds,” “I Want It All,” and “Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High?” — displaying the group’s classic writing chops paired with gritty, slightly glammed rock’n’roll and a whole lot of lusty heartache. Now the band offers us the bigger picture. Stream Arctic Monkeys’ AM on iTunes now.
