Arctic Monkeys have released the video for the title-track of their latest album ‘Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino’ and, to be honest, it’s as weird as we might have expected.
In the video, Alex Turner turns up to the seemingly abandoned Tranquility Base, takes a dip in the hot tub, walks past a sign claiming that The Martini Police (a lyric from other album track ‘Star Treatment’) are playing “2 shows a day, 4 nights a week at the hotel” and, in the song’s chorus, answers a variety of phones as ‘Mark’, from the song’s lyrics. The video for the track was directed by Ben Chappell and Aaron Brown and shot in and around Reno, Nevada.
