Arctic Monkeys Release New Single And Video ‘Do I Wanna Know?’

Since working its way into the Arctic Monkeys recent setlist of late, Do I Wanna Know? has become a crowd favorite. Now the new material from the band has finally been given an official release, with the studio version of the track popping up online today, accompanied by its very own video feature.

Do I Wanna Know?is driven by some sleazy guitar and the relentless pulse of drums as the band map out a much slower song than we’ve become used to from Arctic Monkeys. Despite the down-tempo, the big chorus definitely makes this a radio friendly track so prepare for Arctic Monkeys to once again take over the airwaves.

As for other new material, the band have made no secret of the fact that they are in no rush to complete the follow up to 2011's Suck It And See but there have been strong indications from band members that we can expect more than just a single before 2014, and another new track, Mad Sounds, making its debut at European festivals over the weekend.
