The rockers have shared an image of Alex Turner in what could be visuals for their Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino track.
Arctic Monkeys have appeared to tease new visuals.
Since releasing their Tranquility Base Hotel and Casino album, the band have shared one epic, Stanley Kubrick-inspired video to support their Four out of Five single.
Now, the Sheffield rockers have shared an image of their frontman Alex standing at what looks like a bar speaking on an old-school telephone.
See it here:
Fans have speculated they could be teasing the video for the album's title track, Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino, in which Alex Turner sings: "Good afternoon/ Tranquility Base Hotel and Casino/ Mark speaking/Please tell me how may I direct your call?"

Speaking to Radio X's John Kennedy about the title track, Turner said: "I’ve got some cups that are Apollo mission cups and the word tranquility is in reference to the site of the first moon landing, folks.
"There’s a picture of the eagle and I think it says tranquility base. When it comes to giving the record its title, there may be something you want to convey and you have a title that does that perfectly, but then something else comes along that fits the bill better.”
