tranquility Base Hotel & Casino (single)
One of the biggest musical revelations of 2018 when it was first released due to its sharp left-turn towards lounge-pop, the sixth Arctic Monkeys record may have been a shock to the system on the first listen but has since come to stand confidently as a fully-formed classic.
Now the title track to “Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino” is being released as a limited edition indies-only black 7” vinyl alongside a brand new b-side, “Anyways”. The result of a bold journey into Father John Misty and Richard Hawley territory, it focussed tightly around Alex Turner and his piano, showcasing his usual stunning song-writing craft alongside a more contemplative mood this time around – though this title track managed to keep one foot in both the present and the past.
