Arctic Monkeys have officially dropped “There’d Better Be A Mirrorball,” the lead single of their upcoming album The Car.

Clocking in at approximately four-and-a-half minutes, the new cut is a piano-laden effort that picks up from where 2018’s Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino left off. Frontman Alex Turner’s silky vocals slide over the smooth yet grandiose instrumental effort as he sings his iconic heartbreaking lyrics, ushering in a new era for the Sheffield band.

The Car will mark the group’s first studio record in four years and was produced by longtime collaborator James Ford. The album promises to include “a new and sumptuous musical landscape and contains some of the richest and most rewarding vocal performances of Alex Turner’s career.”

Watch Arctic Monkeys’ music video for ”There’d Better Be A Mirrorball” above. The Car drops October 21.

Elsewhere in music, JID, DJ Khaled and Offset x Moneybagg Yo lead the week’s Best New Tracks.
