Arctic Monkeys have confirmed that they’re back in Sheffield to work on their new album.
Over the past couple weeks, fans have spotted the band together in bars, shops and restaurants in the city.
After rumour first spread of a potential new album, Shamir Masri of the BBC tweeted “Alex Turner told me during an interview for BBC Sheffield they are coming back to Sheffield to pen a new album – it IS happening.”

Their last album ‘AM‘ was released back in 2013, but they’ve been keeping busy since its release. Frontman Alex Turner released an album and an EP with The Last Shadow Puppets while Matt Helders played with Iggy Pop for the ‘Post Pop Depression’ album and tour.
There’s no released date yet for the new Arctic Monkeys album.
