Alex Turner of the Arctic Monkeys has revealed that he isn’t in a rush to put out an album to follow-up the band’s 2013 record AM. Turner told NME, “I’ve written a few things, but I’m not in a hurry. We’re going to keep going [with touring] until the summer and beyond that a little bit, maybe. I don’t know. I wouldn’t think it’ll be too soon that we do the next one.”
- He went on to say that part of the reason that the band isn’t in a hurry to return to the studio is because they are still experiencing success from their album in the U.S. Turner added, “It’s been going really well in America and there’s still lots of sh*t still to do on this album. I don’t feel, for once, that we need to rush and get on to the next thing. It seems like a good place to leave it for a minute.”
- The Arctic Monkeys will headline Reading and Leeds on August Bank Holiday weekend.
- The issue of NME featuring Turner and the Arctic Monkeys is available on newsstands today.
