Arctic Monkeys Prep New Album, Due Out In August

Back in January, a video surfaced on Youtube of Arctic Monkeys performing a new song at a concert in England entitled, "Pretty Visitors". While details are still scarce about their still, as-of-yet-untitled third album, here's what we do know: "Pretty Visitors" appears on it (although we're unsure if the version we heard at the beginning of the year will stay the same), it was produced by Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age and James Ford of Simian Mobile Disco, who by the way was also in charge of production for their incredibly amazing sophomore album, Favourite Worst Nightmare. It's due out August 25th via Domino and we also have a tracklisting, which is down below.

Expectations are incredibly high and we're extremely anxious to hear what direction the band has taken with the new songs. After all, their second album blew their fantastic debut away, so we can only hope the trend continues.
