A few weeks back, we got the Arctic Monkeys’ video for “Do I Wanna Know?” and up to then, speculation started to surround whether or not the band would be releasing a new album sometime soon.
Sure enough, the band announced that they would be releasing a brand new album titled AM on September 10 through Domino Records. Today, the band have released the B-side to “Do I Wanna Know?,” “2013.” The song, will not appear on the new release which means that it’s time to take advantage and listen to the song on repeat.
Tell us what you think of the song? Should it have been included on AM?
