Filmed in black and white, the band breezed through the cheeky piano ballad, which closes the album. Frontman Alex Turner milked the tune’s washed-up lounge singer vibes with some soused swaying and swooning, though as the song hit its peak he expertly belted, “I still got pictures of friends on the wall/ I might look as if I’m deep in thought/ But the truth is I’m probably not/ If I ever was.”
Arctic Monkeys released Tranquility Base Hotel and Casino in May, marking their first album since 2013’s AM. On Monday, the group shared a new video for the album’s title track, which was filmed in Reno, Nevada.
Arctic Monkeys will embark on a two-week, nine-show North American trek in support of Tranquility Base Hotel and Casino tonight, June 24th, at Forest Hills Stadium in Queens, New York.
