Arctic Monkeys – “Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High?”

By Tom Breihan / July 29, 2013

Arctic Monkeys album number five is called AM, and it drops in about a month and a half. We’ve posted the early tracks “Do I Wanna Know?” and “2013,” and now another has made its way to the internet. “Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High?” is all sparse, clean lines and plaintively conversational lyrics, and it finds unforeseen common ground with, say, the xx and Jessie Ware and all the other towering figures in the UK’s recent wave of dark and slinky R&B-derived pop. Listen below.
