Arctic Monkeys Tease New Album with Vinyl Love

Favorite (or should it be favourite?) Brits The Arctic Monkeys return with this teaser from a new album recorded live to analog 24-track tape over a 17 day span by producer James Ford at Sound City Studios in Los Angeles. Can you say old school?

Their fourth album, entitled 'Suck It and See' on Monday 6th June 2011. The album will be released in the US on Tuesday 7th June 2011 and features 12 songs and, of course, will be available on vinyl, as well as CD and digital download.

Monday Morning Music Quote - Jason "Spaceman" Pierce

"There is a guy called Jim Dickinson who produced a lot of Memphis artists and he has this theory that music is all about electricity pushing air molecules around, so it therefore stands to reason that all the best music comes from sea level, where the molecules are thicker - places like Memphis, Louisiana, Los Angeles and Austin. I don't know if the science stands up, but I love the idea."

- Jason Pierce of Spacemen 3 and Spiritualized

*(and of course, Jim Dickinson produced one of my Top-10 all time favorites in Big Star and his family tradition is carried on by his sons Luther and Cody Dickinson of the North Mississippi All Stars)
