More Monkeys!

More of the tracks from the much anticipated 'Humbug' have been leaked. Those tracks vary from the dark maturity of The Last Shadow Puppets - 'Secret Door' to outright stoner rock of Josh Homme's vibe - 'Dance Little Liar'. For the old flair that made us fall in love with the Monkeys in the first place, 'Pretty Visitors' is one hell of a rocking tune. Including Crying Lightning, 6 out of the 10 songs from the album are now on heavy rotation on pretty much everyone's playlist. It's just a matter of time now for the full length album!

Arctic Monkeys - Crying Lightning

The first single from Arctic Monkeys' new album Humbug was premiered today on the BBC's Zane Lowe show. Entitled 'Crying Lightning', the track opted to stray away from the boys' trademark, raw and straightfoward style. It's on the darker side of the Arctic spectrum, and the presence of producer Josh Homme's stoner rhythm influence is strongly felt. The military pounding of drums, and distinctively piercing riffs, coupled with Turner's dark and low vocal, this track is simply awesome. I can predict that the album will be filled with this dark maturity that the Monkeys have been displaying as of late. The Josh Homme/James Ford produced 'Humbug' is due out on August 25. Can't hardly wait!
