Watch New Arctic Monkeys Short Documentary Film "Warp Speed Chic"

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."
