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: “we are kind of into the idea of doing a record that is like ‘Evil Twin’ and ‘R U Mine’. ”

Matt Helders has confirmed what Alex T had previously hinted at: that the Arctic Monkeys are indeed working on new material as they tour with The Black Keys.

“R U Mine” will not be on the new record. Helders says:

“It’s a standalone thing. Mainly because we kinda needed something new to put out for this tour I suppose. We’d already done four singles for ‘Suck It And See’ so we decided to do something new. We haven’t really started writing officially, a record or anything, but there’s a few things we’re playing around with in sound checks.”

when discussing the viral video for “R U Mine,” Helders added:

“The idea was sometimes when were messing around driving we film ourselves singing stupid songs on the radio, people do that I think, and in a way we wanted to do a video we could put out straight away without any promotion which is what we did with ‘Brick By Brick’. We didn’t tell anybody we were releasing it, we just put it out. In a way, that worked better than any other video we’ve put out. And ‘R U Mine?’ more people have watched that than any other video on this album. So obviously it worked.”

finally, Helders says about The Black Keys:

“We’re really big fans of Black Keys, kind of always have been. It’s a great tour to be able to watch them as much as you want as well. We’ve never done a support tour so it’s quite a lot of excitement and fun to just go on for an hour and you’ve got the rest of your night to enjoy as well.”
