Arctic Monkeys is the fifth studio album by the English indie rock band Arctic Monkeys. It was produced by James Ford and co-produced by Ross Orton at Sage & Sound Recording in Los Angeles and Rancho De La Luna in Joshua Tree, California, and released in September 2013 through Domino. The album was promoted by the singles: “R U Mine?”, “Do I Wanna Know?”, “Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High?”, “One for the Road”, “Arabella” and “Snap Out of It”. It features guest appearances by Josh Homme, Bill Ryder-Jones and Pete Thomas.
On 15 July 2013, the album cover artwork was revealed. On 2 September 2013, Arctic Monkeys revealed a track titled “I Want It All” during a XFM radio show, and exclusively played “One for the Road” on Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 show.
Arctic Monkeys were scheduled to perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on 9 October 2013, but had to cancel as Kimmel’s guest, rapper Kanye West, talked for too long. The band performed “Do I Wanna Know?” and “R U Mine?” on the show’s outdoor stage a week later, on 16 October 2013.
