The Arctic Monkeys will release “The Hellcat Spangled Shalalala” as their latest single on August 15th in the UK. The b-side features Miles Kane of the Rascals on lead vox, and the song is attributed to “Miles Kane and the Death Ramps”, the Death Ramps being the Arctic Monkeys’ nom de plume at the moment. You can hear Alex Turner doing some back up singing while the band builds a subversive rock n roll background to Miles’ primary vocals.
The song sounds nothing like The Last Shadow Puppets, it’s more like a combination of the styles of Humbug and Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not. What do you think?
