You absolutely should not be sleeping on AM, the sexy and muscular new album from the ridiculously popular British rock band Arctic Monkeys; to my ears, it’s their best album since their debut. And the band has also matured into a sharp, professional live act; they hit all their marks with absolute panache. Last night, the band performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live. This was a reschedule from last week, when the much-talked-about Kanye West interview went long. And the band sounded awesome, taking over Kimmel’s outdoor stage and playing the AM single “Do I Wanna Know?” and, as an online bonus, the album track “R U Mine?” Watch both below.
AM is out now on Domino.
