Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner spoke to NME last week for the band’s latest Big Read, in which he discussed their new album ‘The Car’, the reaction to their last record ‘Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino’ and the enduring popularity of their songs ‘505’ and ‘A Certain Romance’.

Elsewhere in the interview Turner spoke about Arctic Monkeys’ upcoming UK and Ireland stadium tour, saying that the songs on the band’s new album ‘The Car’ are ripe to “hang out in a stadium”.

The band look set to miss out on the top spot on the UK Album Chart this week, with Taylor Swift‘s new record ‘Midnights’ outselling ‘The Car’.

Arctic Monkeys will feature in a special edition of Later…With Jools Holland next week that will celebrate their new album.
