Arctic Monkeys are due to drop ‘Body Paint’, a new cut from their seventh album ‘The Car’, today, September 29th.
The track follows ‘There’d Better Be A Mirrorball’, which marked the band’s first new material since 2018’s divisive ‘Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino’.
‘Body Paint’ was given its live debut at Brooklyn’s 3000-capacity Kings Theatre during an intimate performance last Thursday (September 22nd). Whilst in New York, Arctic Monkeys also recorded a musical appearance for Jimmy Fallon’s The Tonight Show which is due to air tonight – it seems this will be the song’s first appearance on television.
BBC Radio 1 has announced that Arctic Monkeys will feature on Clara Amfo’s Future Sounds show tonight, as the single becomes their ‘Hottest Record In The World’.
