Arctic Monkeys to record some new songs

Alex Turner spoke to Triple J radio is Australia yesterday, after being asked what 2012 had in-store for them he said "We're about to go on tour in the States with The Black Keys, we're going to open for them for a while, play Coachella and tour South America too." He went on to say "We're going to try and record a couple of new songs in the next few weeks, and maybe put a single out around that. Like a new tune"

They will be recording the new tracks in Sheffield and should be out (we hope) for the American tour supporting The Black Keys. You can hear the interview from Triple J below, he plays 'Suck It And See' and a cover of Patsy Cline's 'Strange'. You can also download the whole interview here if you fancy.
