“Hopefully we’ll get it out this year – that’s the plan.”

According to Alex Turner, the new Arctic Monkeys album will be heavier: “I think we’re going to go the direction of those heavier tunes. We did ‘R U Mine?’, and I think that’s where it’s going to be at for us for the next record.”

Alex also commented on how the band thinks the best songs on “‘Suck It And See” were the heavier ones: “We feel the strength of the last record is ‘Don’t Sit Down…’, the other songs like that – ‘Brick By Brick’ – the other side of it is fine, but I don’t know how much more of that we can do.”

He says:  “For us, it seems obvious to do something different when you make a new record. I know that bands can successfully carry on by having a similar sound forever, can have a full career out of it. Obviously many do and that works. It’s just that I don’t think we’d ever want to do that. We couldn’t make a record like our first record again, it would sound a bit fake.”

He continued: “We’ve never really thought that we can let expectation dictate what kind of music we make. I think it’s important that we make a record that we think is good and hopefully people share that opinion. Since that first record, we’ve all changed and hopefully the people that were into us have changed as well, grown up with us.”

Helders was then asked whether there’d be a break between touring and returning to the studio – and it doesn’t seem likely…

“This is the longest we’ve ever toured a record, since its come out. Usually, we have got back in the studio by now or we’ve had a break. This tour’s great, we’re really enjoying it but I think we’re ready to record again or at least think about it. We never really take that long to make a record.”
