Arctic Monkeys reveal artwork for new album AM
Arctic Monkeys have revealed the artwork to their new album AM.
The artwork, which you can see above, was posted on Twitter by the band this morning (July 14) along with a message which reads: "Here's the artwork for 'AM', released on 9th Sept 2013." The minimal design is in keeping with the animated video and artwork for the album's lead single 'Do I Wanna Know?'.
Last month Arctic Monkeys confirmed details of their fifth studio album AM, which includes the songs 'R U Mine?' and 'Do I Wanna Know?'. Guests on the album include Josh Homme and former member of The Coral, Bill Ryder-Jones.
Last month (June 28), Arctic Monkeys headlined Glastonbury festival. The headline slot was the second time the band have topped the bill at Worthy Farm having first played in 2007 with the band playing new songs as well as fan favourites in a triumphant set.
