Arctic Monkeys will presumably have new material to showcase at Sziget ’22, with drummer Matt Helders recently revealing that the group’s upcoming seventh album was “pretty much” finished. It will follow 2018’s ‘Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino’.

As for the sound of the record, Helders explained: “We tend to always move it on a little bit. For us, because we’re so involved in it, it always makes sense.

“[The albums] always kind of pick up where the other one left off in a way. It makes sense when you think about it in the context of the last record. But we always do try and do something a bit different – it’s kind of hard to describe. You can tell it’s the same band.”

Meanwhile, Dua Lipa has announced Service95 – a new self-curated online hub compiling “words, stories, cultural recommendations” and more.
