Arctic Monkeys have officially begun recording LP6, according to bassist Nick O'Malley.

In an interview with motorcycling website For The Ride, the bassist revealed that recording for the new album began in September at a secret location and the album will likely be released in 2018.

Alex Turner sings a Karaoke version of "Smooth" by Santana and Rob Thomas.

It's been four years since AM, and rumors have been circulating with different accounts of the band entering the studio or with plans to release the album in the summer of 2017. With fall here, it's safe to say those rumors ended up being false. 

In the interview, O'Malley says, "The new album will be out next year because ‘if it isn’t, we’ve got problems’."
