Since their 2007 release ‘Favourite Worst Nightmare’ the Arctic Monkeys have been busy touring and recording their new album ‘Humbug’, which is scheduled to be released in August. Today they released the first single, Crying Lightning which has a slightly different sound compared to their previous stuff. Crying Lightning seems to be more of a slower song compared to much of their previous material for the exception of 505 which Crying Lightning reminds me of.
During the time between albums lead singer Alex Turner created a side project The Last Shadow Puppets with Miles Kane (of The Rascals) & producer James Ford. Their sound was different from what Arctic Monkeys fans were used to but nonetheless it was still good. After listening to Crying Lightning a few more times it seems like their new material is a bit influenced from The Last Shadow Puppets, which I definitely don’t mind as both are awesome!
Listen to Crying Lightning on their MySpace and let me know what you think of their new single.Tweet
