Arctic Monkeys release the 7” of ´Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino,´ the title track of their current album, on Friday, November 30th. The single features a brand new b-side, entitled “Anyways.”
The band have also launched “Warp Speed Chic,” directed by Ben Chappell and previously shown as part of the band’s AM:ZM exhibitions with photographer Zackery Michael in London and Sheffield.
“After spending a year documenting Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino I wanted to try and pull it all together in a short film. I spent a few weeks with the band in France documenting the recording process with my 16mm camera in September 2017. At that point I was still only hearing bits and pieces of the tunes as they were being recorded Nearly a year later I was on stage with them in Lyon France shooting some of those same tunes. When the film came back from the lab I put the live songs next to my shots of them recording and found it to be quite nice.” – Ben Chappell
