In an interview with the Baltimore Sun, Turner discussed his contributions to the Submarine soundtrack.

“I am a romantic fool, no doubt about that. I can’t help myself but write those songs. I spend a bit of time sitting on the couch with an acoustic guitar — taking breaks, having a cigarette, going to the window then going back. When you do that, you end up doing a lot more of that romantic stuff, probably too much.”

Looking back at the band’s fast-paced beginnings, he said:

“I look back on that now and can sort of understand what went on,” he says. “At the time it was a blur. You’re in the eye of the storm and you don’t necessarily know what’s going on.”

About the band’s return to studio, he said:

“Usually by now we get itchy feet and want to get back in the studio, but we haven’t started doing that yet. That’s more about this record rather than slowing down. We want to give it the best shot.”

The Arctic Monkeys’ frontman brought beauty to the Washington radio station for a live in-studio performance on August 10th. He played the softer songs on the album, drawing heartfelt acoustic perfection in his signature way and answering interview questions along the way –speaking about the MOJO awards, US censorship, how he got involved in Submarine and much more.

He played:

“Suck it and See”

“Reckless Serenade”

“Love is a Laserquest”
