Arctic Monkeys announce new album, AM

Arctic Monkeys have announced details of their new album, AM.

The album, the band's fifth studio record, will be released on September 9 and features 12 tracks including the new single "Do I Wanna Know?". The song "Mad Sounds", first played at the Hultsfred festival in Sweden earlier this year, also appears alongside 2012 single "R U Mine?". Scroll down to see the full tracklisting for AM.

Produced by James Ford, the album features appearances from Josh Homme plus former The Coral member Bill Ryder-Jones and Elvis Costello's drummer Pete Thomas. The words of John Cooper Clarke appear on the track "I Wanna Be Yours".

Arctic Monkeys headline Glastonbury festival this Friday (June 28), performing on the opening day of the festival on the Pyramid Stage. Drummer Matt Helders has said that the band plan to "have a bit of fun" with their setlist at the festival on what will be the second time that the band have headlined the Pyramid Stage, following their appearance in 2007. "I'm prepared for what it entails in a way, but I think in terms of preparation we can mould a different kind of setlist for it and have a bit more fun with it," said Helders.

The AM tracklisting is as follows:

'Do I Wanna Know?'
'R U Mine?'
'One For The Road'
'Arabella'
'I Want It All'
'No. 1 Party Anthem'
'Mad Sounds'
'Fireside'
'Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High?'
'Snap Out Of It'
'Knee Socks'
'I Wanna Be Yours'
