Arctic Monkey‘s drummer Matt Helders has revealed that their new album is “pretty much” finished.
In an interview by Radio 5 Live Breakfast, responding to a question if the new album was ready, Helders replied, “Yeah, pretty much, yeah. It was a bit disjointed how we had to do it, and there are bits to finish off, but yeah, it’s all in the works.”
“I think by the time we get everything together, it’ll be next year. Hopefully, we can get out and tour next summer,” he added.
Speaking as part of the BBC‘s Drumathon, Helders hinted at what the sound of the upcoming album will be.
“We tend to always move it on a little bit. For us, because we’re so involved in it, it always makes sense,” Helders said. “They always kind of pick up where the other one left off in a way.”
“It makes sense when you think about it in the context of the last record,” he added. “But we always do try and do something a bit different — it’s kind of hard to describe. You can tell it’s the same band.”
