Arctic Monkeys - Anyways (Official Audio)

Listen to Alex Turner’s b-side to Tranquility Base Hotel And Casino here

Arctic Monkeys have unveiled a new track - titled Anyways, it’s the b-side to the Tranquility Base Hotel And Casino 7” single, which is available now.

The previously-unreleased track came from the sessions for the band’s sixth album, which was released back in May.

The new song is in a similar vein to the “space lounge” vibe of the album, with Alex Turner singing: “Just another microcosm somewhere in the ether / Putting the world to rights with Bing Crosby eyes.”

The making of the Tranquility Base LP was the subject of short film called Warp Speed Chic, directed by Ben Chappell, who masterminded the band’s recent promo videos.
