Arctic Monkeys feel new album has a perfect balance

The frontman of Arctic Monkeys, Alex Turner, has explained that the band's new album is the result of finding a "balance" between their first three records. 

Speaking to Radio 1's Zane Lowe last night, May 30, the 'Brianstorm' singer went into detail about the songs on 'Suck It And See' and revealed they felt like a perfect fit:

"I think the new album is a balance between our first three. There's nothing about taxi ranks or anything like that, but there's a bit of the standpoint I had on those early songs and the sense of humour, but also there's a bit of the 'Humbug' stuff which is kind of off in the corners." 

The record isn't due to hit shelves until next Monday, June 6, but Arctic Monkeys are streaming it in full from their official website as of today, May 31. Watch the band perform 'This House Is A Circus' at a recent show, here:
