The first Arctic Monkeys album in five years is lush and claustrophobic at the same time it calls to mind a guy going a little nutty in a small room in a nice house on a hill, constructing a fantasy world in his head and setting his visions to piano. Which, to hear Alex Turner tell it, is more or less exactly how Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino was born. Its mid-April, a few weeks before the albums May 11 release, and the Monkeys frontman has just descended from his home in the Hollywood Hills to a cafe for breakfast. Its barely 10 a.m., but hes wearing a crisp vintage tan suit safari pockets, flared legs as he slides into a booth: Christian Dior, he says. Turner started writing the new album in 2016, up the hill in his home studio, sitting at a Steinway Vertegrand piano that his manager bought him as a birthday present. Turner, whos long admired the stylistic shape-shiftings of John Lennon and David Bowie, wanted to do something that sounded nothing like the last Monkeys record the platinum-certified AM, full of snaking guitar riffs and heavy grooves. Having never written on a piano before, he thought the Vertegrand might shake loose a new sound, and he was right: The places my fingers would naturally fall on the piano lent themselves, he says, to chords, progressions and jazz turns that suggested to me this idea of a lounge-y character, which never would have occurred to me had I been playing a guitar.
