Arctic Monkeys aren’t starting work on their new album, Twitter was just fibbing

The state of you lot, eh?
Arctic Monkeys aren’t heading back to the studio soon, whatever you see on social media.

Earlier this week, an image circulated on social media suggesting the band were starting work on their sixth album this September. Obviously that sounds Really Very Exciting, until you realise it’s not true. Someone’s just having photoshop fun.

In a statement to the Independent, a spokesperson for the band said: “That tweet that has caused the stir about the band being back in the studio was posted by a fan, using photoshopped artwork. We’ve got no news about the band being in the studio at this point at all.”

“It won’t be in the very near future though (despite overkeen fans!)”
