The Arctic Monkeys have announced the release of their seventh album The Car, on Friday the 21st of October on Domino, the followup to 2018’s Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino.

The announcement comes ahead of the band’s performance at Electric Picnic next week, and the band debuted one of the songs ‘I Ain’t Quite Where I Think I Am’ in Zurich this past week, which has loose psych funk vibes.
