Arctic Monkeys growing new music and beards

According to NME, Artic Monkeys are recording new music. The report states that drummer Matt Helders told a fan of the band that they should expect this fresh crop of songs before the end of the year. Photos of the band growing new material in the studio have floated around for a while now, and on top of that lead singer/guitarist Alex Turner has grown a beard.

This will be Artic Monkey’s sixth album following up 2013’s ‘AM’ which featured the hits “Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High?”, “R U Mine?”, and “Do I Wanna Know?”
