Arctic Monkeys Begin New Album
Frontman Alex Turner and the band are hoping the put out the record in late spring of this year. The album, as yet untitled, will be the Sheffield foursome's follow-up to 2009's Humbug, which was a co-production between Ford and Josh Homme. Ford also worked on the Monkeys' second album, Favourite Worst Nightmare, as well as Klaxons' Myths of the Near Future and Florence and the Machine's Lungs.
