In a little less than a month, Arctic Monkeys will return with their fourth album Suck It and See, and after dropping two killer tracks (including "Brick by Brick"), Alex Turner and Co. have just leaked a third cut: "Reckless Serenade." Hear it here (via Pretty Much Amazing).

The track is the most gorgeous one to hit yet — a chiming, guitar-powered rock ballad with singer Alex Turner singing a tribute to his belle in a warm baritone worthy of Morrissey. There's no fancy guitar solos, string sections, atmospherics, or ornate production — it's just the Monkeys kicking out a great pop tune, which weirdly sounds like a goth interpretation of the La's "There She Goes."

Hear It: Arctic Monkeys, "Reckless Serenade"
