Arctic Monkeys' working on 'poppy' album
Arctic Moneys' new album will be "more poppy" than their last.
The group will release 'Suck It And See' on June 6 and drummer Matt Helders has promised the 12-track record will be more accessible than their last effort, 2009's 'Humbug'.
He said: "Some of the songs are a bit more instant. A bit more poppy, certainly than 'Humbug' was.
"It's enjoyable for us and the listener. And it's maybe a bit more easy going. Not easy listening, but with a few poppier tunes. But in an interesting way."
The 'Brianstorm' rocker - who is joined in the band by frontman Alex Turner, guitarist Jamie Cook and bassist Nick O'Malley - also revealed before going into the studio, the band had a more clear direction of how they wanted the record to sound than they did when they began working on 'Humbug'.
He added to NME magazine: "With 'Humbug' we recorded 25 songs and narrowed it down afterwards. This time we had a clear idea of where we were going before we even went to the studio."Posted on 16 Mar 2011 08:30 to category : Music News
