Arctic Monkeys Premiere New Song "Do I Wanna Know?" Live

Arctic Monkeys performed at a show in L.A. last night, unveiling a slow, bluesy track titled “Do I Wanna Know.” The four-minute performance is a brooding, hard-hitting track characteristic of the darker tone we’ve seen from their most recent efforts, like 2011’s Suck It and See. Reflecting a direction into heavier territory for the Sheffield foursome, the track is the first taste of the band’s highly anticipated fifth album, which remains untitled and without a release date.

After moving to L.A., frontman Alex Turner said in an interview with NME that the band’s fifth album is “built on rock ‘n’ roll so the best studios and equipment are here.”

Displaying some rock ‘n’ roll swagger, check out the latest from Arctic Monkeys.
