Arctic Monkeys Why only when I'm high

Can’t help myself posting about Arctic Monkeys again – because they just put out another awesome song and video yesterday: “Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High?”

I really like how the video (directed by Nabil) starts out with 1 1/2 minutes of their previous new single “Do I Wanna Know?” playing at the bar where Alex Turner is getting pissed (gotta use the English term here, right?). “Do I Wanna Know?” is definitely my favorite song of the summer. That slow driving beat and those lyrics… Mmmm…

This song is a bit more upbeat but still invites to rather slow dancing. Still need to try it out personally. At this point, it is clear that the new album AM, coming out on September 9th, is a theme album (the first released single was “R U Mine?”). Lots of questions, lots of longing, lots of love and desire, lots of great music.

Unfortunately, the video was released via Vevo on YouTube, so it can’t be watched in Germany unless you use a proxy.

Oh, and the video is NSFW – well, depending on your workplace, I suppose.

Alex Turner has some wants
