Arctic Monkeys Steer The Car to UK TV Circuit: Watch
Arctic Monkeys brought their first couple of singles from The Car to British TV in the past week. They played “There’d Better Be a Mirrorball,” with Alex Turner at the piano (albeit briefly), for the BBC’s Later… With Jools Holland, and “Body Paint” for Channel 4’s The Jonathan Ross Show. Watch the videos below.
Also this weekend, the band shared a long excerpt of their show last month at Brooklyn’s King’s Theatre. That night, Turner stuck around on the piano for the full “Mirrorball” and played an incandescent rendition of The Car’s “Mr Schwartz” on acoustic guitar, accompanied only by touring bandmate Tom Rowley.
Last week, the band released a third single from The Car, “I Ain’t Quite Where I Think I Am.” Arctic Monkeys’ North American tour with Fontaines D.C. kicks off next year.
