Arctic Monkeys have shared the first taste (and opening track) of their anticipated seventh album The Car (due 10/21 via Domino), "There'd Better Be A Mirrorball." As the live debut of "I Ain't Quite Where I Think I Am" hinted, this album seems to be continuing down the loungey path of 2018's Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino (though Alex Turner says "sci-fi is off the table" this time), and "There'd Better Be A Mirrorball" is indeed loungey, with swooning, sweeping strings worthy of a Bond theme. Listen and watch the Alex Turner-directed video below.
