Arctic Monkeys Perform ‘Body Paint’ On The Tonight Show: Look + Listen

On Thursday (9.29,) the Arctic Monkeys visited Jimmy Fallon and The Tonight Show to perform their latest release, “Body Paint.”

Along with a vintage music video filmed in London and Missouri, “Body Paint” is the second single from the British pop/rock band’s forthcoming full length The Car, coming 10.10 c/0 Domino Records.

The group’s newest release follows “There’d Better Be a Mirrorball” and their performance at Life Is Beautiful this month, where they performed “I Ain’t Quite Where I Think I Am” from the new LP. The Car will be the Monkeys seventh album and follows the release of their 2018 record, Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino.

A press release about the project describes the Arctic Monkeys “running wild in a new and sumptuous musical landscape,” adding that the new collection “contains some of the richest and most rewarding vocal performances of Alex Turner’s career.”

In a prior interview Turner spoke to The Big Issue about how he was inspired by Oscar-winning film editor Walter Murch when making the record, stating:

“There’s a bunch of interesting ideas that he’s speaking about,” said Turner about Murch’s book. “And that feels connected to the process and also the feel or lyrics on this new record.” “He talks about meeting some friends of his wife, and one of them says: ‘So you’re the guy who cuts out all the bad bits, then?’” “Initially, he is offended, but after all these years, he came around to thinking: ‘Well, yeah, that is actually what I’m doing.’ But the question is: ‘What constitutes a bad bit?’”
