The new album from Arctic Monkeys is easily the most hotly anticipated record of the year, and it looks like its arrival could be imminent.Although it had been confirmed that the LP was expected to drop in 2018, it now seems we could get our hands on new music as soon as May. Fan George Evans, who posted a selfie with drummer Matt Helders to Instagram, wrote "next AM album out in May."See the post below.
