Arctic Monkeys have shared a new track, "Stop the World I Wanna Get Off With You," on their YouTube account. The soulful rocker is the B-side to the band's latest single, "Why'd You Only Call Me When You're High?," which will be featured on their upcoming fifth album, AM (out September 10th in the U.S. on Domino Records).

"Stop the World" finds the Monkeys in surprisingly romantic territory, with frontman Alex Turner's elastic tenor snaking over jagged guitars and tumbling tom-toms. "I know we got places to go, we got people to see," he sings. "Think we both oughta put 'em on hold, and I know you agree."

The sensual vibe of "Stop the World" probably isn't a fluke. Earlier this summer, collaborator Josh Homme (of Queens of the Stone Age) called AM "a sexy, after-midnight record."
