Back in May, the Arctic Monkeys released new album "Tranquility Base Hotel And Casino," although they're still giving us some new fun goodies...including a documentary film!
The band just released short film "Warp Speed Chic" which takes us behind the scenes in the making of the album. It also shows them debuting a lot of the songs for the first time too.
Talking about the film, director Ben Chappell says:
"After spending a year documenting Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino I wanted to try and pull it all together in a short film. I spent a few weeks with the band in France documenting the recording process with my 16mm camera in September 2017. At that point I was still only hearing bits and pieces of the tunes as they were being recorded. Nearly a year later, I was on stage with them in Lyon France, shooting some of those same tunes. When the film came back from the lab I put the live songs next to my shots of them recording and found it to be quite nice. With that as a starting point, I then used James Ford's instrumental mixes of the album and I put an assortment of the images we created for this album overtop, giving a glimpse into the last year and the full progression of Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino."
