Music is the essence of the soul. The way music transcends through people and generations is something worth noting. Life is of the essence and one cannot discount the fact that the same applies to music too because it is of the essence.
Arctic Monkeys’ new song ‘Sculptures Of Anything Goes’ has an ‘AM’ sound feel to it. The band has had so many exceptional albums over the years and this one is no different. While the song and the album is due to be released on October 21st via Domino, you can always pre-order it.
During a recent interview with Dutch radio station NPO 3FM, frontman Alex Turner said that ‘Sculptures…’ finds the Monkeys in a “different” musical landscape. Turner went on to say that ‘Sculptures…’ came about after guitarist Jamie Cook “got a Moog synthesiser and put a drum machine through it, and made that sound”.
That [song] does remind me a little bit of some of the desert-ier side of the ‘AM’ record from 2013. It feels like there’s still a bit of that dust in there. We wrote a song based off that, really… is the succinct answer. It started there [and then] it became a million other things. There were multiple different versions, and it ended up kind of back where it started… having had a haircut.
Drummer Matt Helders added that Arctic Monkeys had been rehearsing a live version of the track. “Yeah, it’s great,” he continued. “It’s a fun one to do.” Arctic Monkeys have already released two singles from ‘The Car’: ‘There’d Better Be A Mirrorball’ and ‘Body Paint’. The band are set to tour in the UK/Ireland, Europe and North America in 2023.
