The rollout for the new Arctic Monkeys record The Car is well underway, with the four-piece dropping its newest single “Body Paint.”
The followup to the lead single “There’d Better Be A Mirrorball,” which released in late August, “Body Paint” is released with an accompanying music video helmed by Brook Linder and starts off as a ballad-like cut before transforming into a heavier, guitar-laden track. It was first premiered during the group’s show in Brooklyn in last week and arrives just a few days after they announced a 2023 stadium tour, which will see them in Australia, the United Kingdom and Europe between January to June.
In a previous interview with Big Issue, frontman Alex Turner explained that “on this record, sci-fi is off the table. We are back to earth” in comparison to its predecessor Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino. “I think we’ve got closer to a better version of a more dynamic overall sound with this record,” he added. “The strings on this record come in and out of focus and that was a deliberate move and hopefully everything has its own space. There’s time the band comes to the front and then the strings come to the front.”
