Sheffield based indie rockers Arctic Monkeys have premiered a brand new track "Mad Sounds," believed to be taken from their upcoming album, at Hultsfred festival in Sweden and NorthSide in Denmark. Watch a video of the performance below.
As Gigwise reports, in both shows they started their set with "Do I Wanna Know?" It is another new track from the next album. That track was initially revealed when they performed in LA last month.
Alex Turner, frontman, introduced the slower, softer track, telling the audience that they were going to "break things down, just a bit," for some slower songs before joking that they should: "Keep warm by cuddling or something like that."
This album will be their fifth studio album, the follow-up to 2011 release, "Suck It and See." They also released single "R U Mine," as part of World Record Day in 2012.
The band are performing at Glastonbury at the end of this month, so will probably perform these new tracks on home soil. The album should be out by September, as confirmed by Turner.
