[WATCH] Arctic Monkeys Share First Video From New LP

Arctic Monkeys released their new album, Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino, on Friday but did not issue a single or video beforehand to promote it. Now that the LP is out, however, the band has shared a video for the song “Four Out Of Five.”

The clip opens with frontman Alex Turner at the piano composing a song. Meanwhile, a bearded Turner is seen in a subway tunnel, and the video soon alternates between different versions of the singer, one of which performs the track alongside the rest of the band.

The video also features a shot of Turner staring down at his cardboard concept of the Tranquility Base Hotel, a shot that he admits was lifted from The Shining. He explained to Rolling Stone, “I kept calling it the lobby model, like the idea that sometimes those things sit in the lobbies of the buildings they represent — that loop is appealing to me, like in The Shining, with the miniature hedge maze in the lobby, and he’s looking in there and then he sees the people are in there.

The British quartet will dip in and out of North America throughout the summer and fall, playing shows in June, July, early August and mid-October.

The new LP follows up 2013’s AM, which was Arctic Monkeys’ fifth album and their biggest U.S. release to date. It featured the Modern Rock hit “Do I Wanna Know?”
